The first part is complete. Our own home made advent calendar. I was inspired by one I saw in Real Living Magazine which used little buckets. The likelihood of me finding something similar to the buckets in a local store, and in the quantity I needed was slim, so I kept my mind open to other suitable options.
A packet of cupcake cases were the answer. I added some twine as handles (Little Red was able to help with this part), roped through a festive looking silver trim, penned on some numbers, and voila - a very festive advent calendar garland.
I haven't filled the cases. I'll do that on a daily basis and the Little's will be able to check them each night after dinner. Then we can also use the checking of the calendar as a
I asked Little Red if she liked it this morning when she saw it. She said she did. Not surprisingly, she added that she didn't like the fact that it was hanging down and rather it should be straight across. Surprisingly however, she didn't demand I change it.
Super easy, compliments our decor, cost effective and reusable for years to come. Perfect!
Yeah, i know my white balance is out in these photo's. Can't figure out that one.
