How to Make an Omer Counter with an Acrylic Frame

Hello, my name is Rin, and I’m really bad at counting the omer. I always forget when I’m supposed to start (it’s the second day of Passover). So this year, I’m determined to get it right with this fun and easy acrylic omer counter.

I made mine with a Cricut machine, but I’m sure you can hand cut out the vinyl or find some really cute stickers to get the job done. As for the frame, I got it at my favorite dollar store, where I will forever buy frames in sizes 8 inch by 10 inches or smaller. Because frames are dang expensive anywhere else!

To mark each of the days, I’ll be using a chalk pen to write the number directly on the acrylic. Depending on the paper you choose for your project, a white pen may appear different. I used a pretty, light blue holographic paper, but the chalk paint is not as easy to see when photographed. A classic look would be to choose a mat black for a chalkboard look.
