Advent Calendar Made from Repurposed Household Items

It’s not too late to have an advent calendar….especially one you can make yourself using things you probably already have at hand.  Check out this merry and bright Christmas advent calendar made by Jamie at Scattered Thoughts of a Crafty Mom.

Clothes Pins

For this project, inspiration began with clothespins.  Jamie had lots of them, and realized that she could dress them up with washi tape.  Once the colorful clothespins were ready, she placed twine across the front of a a picture frame, attaching the twine with hot glue to the back side of the frame.  Small treat bags were numbered and filled with a few sweet things, then pinned onto the twine with the colorful clothespins.  A sweet, simple advent calendar!
