Advent Calendar

I know it's been awhile.  I have been busy getting things together for a winter craft show that took place last weekend.  I hope to share some of the things I made in the next week.  For today, I am featuring an Advent calendar I made a couple of years ago that is still in excellent shape.  The background of the calendar is a table runner I picked up at Home Goods (loved the embroidered trees at the bottom).  Then I found the felt mittens and stocking ornaments at Big Lots.  I cut the top off the table runner and wrapped it around the dowel.  Then I glued the ribbon on and fed it through a metal ornament I found at Walmart.  The mittens and stockings are hot glued on and embellished with buttons and numbers.  It is difficult to find treasures to fit these little things but I sometimes just add a message or fun activity.  I have two kids so I have them take turns every other day.  
I love seeing all the variations of Advent Calendars.  I would love to see yours!!
