I have been planning on making this advent calendar for a couple years...
My daughter and I finally sat down together to make this one and a couple others for the sale a couple of weekends ago. We had so much fun making it together.
Start with some tea dyed shipping tags. I usually buy these by the box from U-line to always have them on hand. Or you can get them at Office Max.
I use them for gift hangtags, tags for pricing my antiques etc.
I pulled out my bags of old vintage christmas goodies I have collected over the years, my stamps, old photos, my glitter, some vintage broken jewelry pieces, game pieces etc.
I stamped the tags from 1 through 24. This was so much fun to make with my daughter.
It was like a puzzle putting the different goodies on the days.
On each tag we glued a little christmas goodie making sure that the composition of the overall month looked balanced.
I took an old vintage frame and covered some old foam core with a nice velvet fabric.
Pin the goodies up and you will have a wonderful advent calendar for the kids to countdown the days until santa comes!
This is a wonderful holiday decor heirloom that can be passed down to your kids!
