advent calendars

DIY advent calendar from the marion house book
I love the idea of counting down the days to Christmas with a creative and unique advent calendar. Such a wonderful way to get in the mood for the holiday season. Gone are the days of your grandma's embroidered advent calendar, where you moved the mitten from one square to the next. Create a calendar that suites your home/style, and spice things up with some twine, kraft paper, washi tape, tinsel, clothespins...And make each day just a bit more special with a hand-wrapped treat that you can open with your children or loved ones. What? December 1 is tomorrow? Better get to craftin'...  

hanger + tinsel + hot pink tags + kraft paper gifts = advent beauty from FRYD + DESIGN
DIY from The Little Red House. Perfect for someone like me who may have waited until the last minute.
