We have been officially celebrating Advent for three years now, in which I have actually put together a calendar for the family. Now today as I meet December 1st, I'm totally unprepared. Ideas have been floating in my head, but nothing is sticking. I think I may use the same calendar from last year, with a couple adjustments (gotta look in some more boxes). The holiday season finds me at this moment in not such a festive mood, but I've got Christmas music in my car, on my i-pod so hopefully the cheer of the season will get to me soon!
In the mean time I thought I would share with you our Advent calendars/crafts from the three past years~
I think I purchased most of the materials of this calendar from Hobby Lobby. I glued those wooden stars on that felt material (glue gun, love) and wrote the dates on the wooden stars with a marker-very homey!
What I like most about this calendar are the girls drawings and the wooden clothespins that we generously dipped in glitter.
The story behind this calendar is here.
Crafts we've enjoyed doing....
popsicle sticks, construction paper, glue, beads, buttons, random pieces of fabric makes for great Christmas crafting.
Tell me what are you crafting, making, cooking up for this holiday season?
Happy first day of Advent!
