I hope all of you had a nice Thanksgiving weekend. Now, Chirstmas is upon us.
A friend of mine and I were talking about advent calendars and how she wanted to make one for her two year old.
And that's all I've been thinking about. Advent calendars.
The idea is to make a countdown to Christmas day. It's exciting because a small gift is opened each day (day 1 to day 24). But I do like the idea of an activity that the whole family can enjoy, or performing a random act of kindness, or reading a new book leading up to Christmas.
Here are a few cool ideas:
|via everyday miracles|
|via lapin blu|
Gifts hanging from an embroidery ring (or wreath)
|via oh happy day|
Trees and tiny boxes
|via la petite cuisine|
Using a tree branch
|via the fox and star|
Origami paper and washi tape
A shoe organizer
A baking pan and colorful paper
I hope you're feeling inspired to make your own using everyday materials that turn blah to TADA!
