Hello everyone & Happy Friday!
Today I am going to share a project that I did 2 years ago! (Can't believe it's really been that long ago!) However, I LOVE this item & I leave it out in my Studio all year long to admire it!
This is an Advent Calendar that I did as a Class! These make a great addition to your Christmas decorating and they're fun for the kids to see what kinds of prizes you can put in the tiny drawers too!
First...a photo of the whole Calendar!
& now some details...
The Rosette above the fireplace.
The tree made of tiny curled strips of paper!
The fire in the fireplace & the stockings hanging patiently.
& some close-ups of a few of the boxes...
Each one has it's own special touch!
My husband never remembered having an Advent Calendar of his own, so I used this one for him (since we didn't have our daughter yet anyway)... I bought bags of chocolate...coal, gold coins, holiday shapes & some other candy & small things to put inside. The boxes are quite small but he likes sweets, so it worked out well!
Now...I'm not rushing Christmas...it'll be here before I'm ready, just like every year! However, I wanted to share because if you'd like to make something like this for this Christmas, I suggest you get started NOW! ;) If you need any help or suggestions, I'll help if I can!
Enjoy! (& now I'm off to plan something for Halloween...as that is my favorite holiday by far!)
Happy Labor Day Weekend! Have a fun & safe time with whatever activities you have planned!
