Advent Calendar

Only a couple days late! I finally finished my advent calendar that I started last month. I had to muster up some ambition to glue together all of the loose bells that were jingling in my crafting bag! A couple of really neat girls organized a super-duper craft night in November, and it was such a blast! We all brought some treats to share and spent about six hours talking and cutting and sewing and laughing and glueing. Hip-hip-hooray to the ladies that fist-time-braved the sewing machines, and double hooray to my friend that untied all of my bells from the garland! I sewed the pockets on her calendar in return. I probably would have had to come up with something else to stick in those little pockets if she hadn't untied them all for me!

See? They turned out really cute! I had to glue them all back together on a smaller string because they all came tied on one huge bell garland. My glue gun and I are becoming the best of friends. We sewed beads on the tree to hang all the bells from. Love it.... and only 19 more days 'til Christmas!


  1. This is such a cute idea! I am going the traditional route of making a paper construction chain this year....but maybe for next year I will tackle this one. :)

  2. That is such a fun idea! How do you keep coming up with so many super cute, fantastcal, useful things!!your amazing.

  3. Looks great!!

  4. What a fun idea. I've been looking for an advent calendar idea that I could make with my daughter. I bet she'd love this!
