And Here It Is - The Third (And Final) Christmas Countdown Advent Calendar

Earlier this month, I posted two different Advent calendars that I made using upcycled items and "Tis The Season" beads from Prima Beads, and now I'd like to share the third and final advent calendar I made:



The base is made from a 16" wooden tree form from Woodworks, Ltd. that I spray painted a dark green.  I also spray painted 3/4" wooden circles in a deep red and doodled the numbers 1 - 25.



Using a small paper punch, I punched holes in the top and bottom of the circles, hung on various charms from both the 'Tis the Season line and others from my stash, and hung them on pre-made Christmas tree ornament hangers I found at Joann.

I then added coiled green wire to help hold the ornaments in place, and mounted the whole thing to an antique wood rosette that I found at a local salvage shop which makes the whole thing more stable.

So, there you are - three ways to make the countdown to Christmas more fun in your home:


Come back soon to see some fun holiday jewelry made using more of the "Tis The Season" beads from Prima Beads!
