I have wanted to make an advent calendar for a few years now. Searching on pinterest  Alison’s Pinterest boards there are so many great ideas.

Falling in love with so many was the 1st problem……. the 2nd was when do I have time to make one !

I had my husband make me a “tree” from thin wood first.

I laid out my Mini clothes pins that were already adorned with small wood winter theme decorations.  From Micheal’s Art and Crafts  $1.50 bins from last year.

I made Bags from Envelopes using this How to make bags from an envelope.

Using small circles I numbered the bags. Filling the bags with mini candies and hershey kisses.

My little has been enjoying getting one everyday. She also knows when Christmas will be here !!

Share your Advent !!!
