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!!
