Homemade Advent Calendar
I hope you’re having a good week!
After a crazy busy weekend, I finished the advent calendar that I was making for the children, and ta-daaa! Here it is in it’s full glory. I used one of my job lot of large antique frames that I found at a car boot fair (post about some of the frames here) after giving it a coat of paint. The Range do lots of large frames which you could paint and distress to look older.
I used mini white pegs to hang the little bags I made onto a twine washing line. A trip to the 99p Store for chocolate coins and stickers to go in each little bag and we’re good to go! I love the red and white theme, and I’m making some bunting from the same fabrics too for a festive Scandinavian feel.
Once Christmas is over I will use my new frame to display photographs and mementos.
I can’t believe December is just round the corner, I’m really looking forward to sharing lots of festive posts with you!
