Advent Calendar

Last week I shared a hint of the Advent Calendar project that has taken up much of my spare time recently.  I started with this amazing pattern over at ShannonMakesStuff.  While the pattern is intended to make a Christmas tree background and ornament advent calendar, I've adapted it to fit our home, budget, and storage space.  Instead of the Christmas tree background, I've strung the ornaments on ribbon along our mantle.  Instead of felt, I've used paper and Mod Podge.   The project is a bit less than half way done.  Here are some pictures of how it's turned out:

  1. Visiting here from Finer Things Friday!

    That is really sweet. My girls and I love Advent calendars, crafty ones and chocolate filled ones. Our calendar is a large box with doors. Behind each door is some sweets and a Christmas activity.
