25 Days of Christmas 2011: Day 1
Today I'm very excited to kick off our 25 Days of Christmas blog series!! I have a lot of great project ideas to share with you this month...from decor items to fun crafts to do with your family to perfect gift ideas. Every day until Christmas we will have a new project idea posted here - so be sure to check back everyday for some Holiday Inspiration.
Day 1: Advent Calendars
Since we are going to be counting down the days on the blog, we thought we would share some creative ways you could count down the days until Christmas too!!
The first advent calendar was created using a paper mache tree that comes unfinished in white. All we did was add a little paint, some pattern paper and number stickers and you have an adorable advent tree. Each drawer pulls out also so you have a perfect spot to add a little treat or write down an activity for that day. A project sheet for this project can be found HERE.
The second advent idea I wanted to share was this one I created using the Winter Wishes Advent kit from Little Yellow Bicycle. This project actually comes pre-packaged as a kit so all you have to do it put it together and add a photo - everything you see here is included! This would be a great one to use to write down a daily message or a holiday activity to do for each day. The kit for this advent can be found in our Paper Crafts department.
