Easy DIY “Christmas Countdown” Advent Calendar.
I’ve been dreaming of making this since summer….
and I finally got busy and did it this week.
Just in time!
I was looking for a fun way for my granddaughter to count down the days until Christmas with a little surprise each day, so when I found this inexpensive Over the Door Shoe Organizer this summer, I knew just what I was going to do.
I used fabric paint to paint the numbers on each “shoe pouch” – just the right number for an advent calendar!
And it was so much fun shopping for little toys and art projects and treats and hair bows and socks and mittens to fill all 24 compartments.
I think the anticipation of Christmas is almost more fun than the day itself. I love the whole month leading up to it.
A friend shared this Advent Calendar of Kindness recently on Facebook, and I couldn’t resist sharing it too.
Don’t let the stress of the materialism of the holiday ruin this special time. Small gifts of anticipation and everyday acts of kindness can make all the difference! It’s what we need more of.
Cheers & Hugs,
