DIY’ed Advent Calendar

Finally, pictures to prove how productive we have been with our DIY projects lately. At the beginning of the month, I wrote this post about DIY-able advent calendars, and I finally have pictures of ours!

We added a few holiday decorations to the mantle as well. Why is it that this thing never feels finished? We need to figure out how to fill up all that empty space to either side…

With a little help from my son, we made our advent calendar/garland using scrapbook paper, glue sticks, clothespins, and yarn. (And don’t forget the chocolate!)
We made little envelopes from the paper, glued them together with a glue stick, filled them with candy and hung using clothespins and yarn! Super Simple.

So each night, when we remember within the chaos of post-dinner snack time, the kids get to take turns pulling down an envelope and split the chocolate between them. Only 12 days left till Christmas!

Pictures to come soon of the kids room, it’s almost done! (See the “Plan” here if you havn’t seen it yet.)

Now, someone please tell me where I can find some pretty fabric! (It’s all I need to finish the kiddos room makeover.) The Joanne’s in Annapolis had every minky fabric known to man, but nothing modern or simple for curtains… Suggestions please!
