Advent Calendar {diy}

Monday, December 1, 2014

Every year I try and come up with a simple {DIY} Advent Calendar.   My brown paper bag advent calendar remains my most popular post and pin.    The one I made for this year took very little time and just a few supplies from the backyard and a trip to Michaels. The only tricky part is trying to find 24 tiny gifts.  It was a lot easier when my kids were younger.   A piece of candy, a holiday book or DVD….now the expectations (mostly mine) are so much higher, but it’s still fun at all ages.

The supplies started with having my husband cut a few branches from a tree and then I spray painted them gold.  I found tiny and small size bags at michaels and some small take-out containers.  I wrote numbers one through 24 on each bag or container with a gold Sharpie and hung them with white twine from ikea.  I added a strand of of white lights, because one can never have too many twinkle lights!
