Happy Black Friday Friends!

Hope Everyone had great family time, lots of food yesterday and today is just for fun and shopping.
Today I am sharing my very first and {I think}super cute Advent Calendar.
I created this fun project last week on a rainy afternoon.
This is our first year having Advent Calendar. My older son is four yrs old, and I thought he would definitely LOVE this family fun Christmas countdown.
I wanted to create something that WE, the FAMILY will look forward to every and each day until Christmas.
I wrote little notes: activities, fun family programs for each day that are Christmas related and we are opening them up day by day to see what each day has in store for us.
Oh, I can not wait to start this countdown.
FUN, FUN, FUN

So if you like this cute Advent Calendar, here is what you will need to create it:
-wood pallets
-sawing machine {to cut the edges -optional}
-sand paper
-white paint
-scrapbook paper
– clothes pins
-twine
TUTORIAL:
1. Pick out some old wood pieces {You don’t need more than 6-7 pieces }
2.Angle the edges of the wood if saw machine is available. { if you don’t have a tool to cut your wood, you can just leave the edges straight}
3.Sand the wood pieces and paint them with the color of your choice.
4.Nail the pieces together after they completely dry.
5.Pick out a few colorful scrapbook paper and washi tapes and cut out triangles of your papers that could be folded.
6.Decorate the clothes pins with washi tape {get yours today for an incredible price HERE} and buttons.
7.Using my cutting tool { Silhouette }, I cut out numbers to add on to each triangle.
If you don’t have a tool available you can just use store bought numbers or only written numbers

  1. Hi Aniko
    So good to meet you. I'm Angel and we are cohosting the Giveaway together. I really love your creation. This is really cute. Great job. I am following you via GFC, Bloglovin, Pinterest, FB and Twitter. Hope you will come by and visit me too. Please let me invite you to join my CLIMB blog hop also. Maybe you'd be interested in co-hosting with me sometime on the CLIMB.

  2. I am wondering with cartridge you used to cut your numbers in the circle. I can't seem to find one that will cut 2 numbers in one circle. Thanks!
    Kayce
