Birthday Countdown!

My son's birthday is fast approaching and since he LOVES advent calenders (just like his mama)- I thought it would be fun to make one and help build the anticipation to his big day! 
I got most of my inspiration from Nap Time Journal's Cupcake countdown.... when I saw it, I knew I had to make one for myself.  
I have a lot of felt leftover from my felt playhouse so this project cost me nothin'.
I am planning on having him take away one candle a day (which are velcroed to the cupcake)- Doing this will leave us with the BIG orange one { permanently sewn on} to mark his big day! 
{I made a total of 9 removable candles so if we use all of them, the countdown is ten days prior to birthday, ten makes things a bit crowded.. but more fun- right!}
The candles are made with two pieces of felt and some yellow ribbon 
{notes: The backing and orange hook are both made out of two pieces of felt sewn together.}
This was such a fun and surprisingly quick project.
Let the countdown begin... I know one little guy who is pretty excited!!
