We got started with Christmas decorations early this year- I swear I was ready as soon as Halloween was over! It's taken a couple weeks of working here and there, but I'm just about done. Anyway, this post isn't a full tour, but I wanted to show you the new advent calendar I made this morning.
I've seen trees like this around the web, and knew I had to make one for myself when I found the rustic wood strips at Hobby Lobby (like I used for this frame).
I raided my stash of vintage ornaments and found ones that were a good size.
There are twenty-five nails, one for each day of December.
Here you can see that it still looks pretty even when it isn't full of ornaments.
I put these wire baskets out to hold the ornaments until they are hung.
And here it is with no ornaments- still just as pretty!
Now it's ready to begin the month tomorrow! I think I'll let the kids take turns picking out which ornament to hang- I wonder which one they'll choose first?
