One of the projects I started (while staying at the cabin for the weekend) was this advent calendar for my husband & I. This marks our first Christmas in our new house, so I wanted to start a new tradition.
This is so simple to make - if you are looking to make one last minute, try this out.
-25 tags (large)
-25 mini glassine bags (to make pockets.)
-Cork Board + fabric (I used red burlap)
-Glue + Glitter (to write numbers. Or use a pretty pen)
-Pins or tacks
-Write numbers on tags
-Glue on glassine "pockets"
-Find a corkboard around the house
-Cut fabric to size, tack to each corner of corkboard
-Arrange tags on board
-Make/gather items to put in each pocket
I did items for the odd numbers & Q was responsible for the even's, so each day will be a surprise for one of us. We did items like candy, clues about Christmas gifts, Bible verses, ideas for holiday-related activities (ice skating, making cookies), and fun little notes to each other.
