Advent Calendar

I decided to make an advent calendar this year. (The world has not ended but yes I did a craft.) This craft project couldn’t of been easier.  My 5 year old is so excited about Christmas. He literally melts my heart with his excitement. It’ll be fun to let him open a bag everyday. I filled each bag with little things like matchbox cars, chocolate santas, and little notes with fun activities for us to do together.

I picked up these 3×5 cotton drawstring muslin bags on Amazon and what do you know they come in a batch of 25. Winning!

I used DecoArt silver metallic paint to stencil on the numbers.

The stencil is the Martha Stewart alphabet/number monogram serif stencil.

I used black ribbon to attach the bags to the staircase. It’s the same ribbon I used in the living room to tie the fabric on the rosemary trees.

I can’t wait to start this tradition with my son! Do you use an Advent calendar? If so what sort of gifts do you give? I sorta winged it this year and could use some suggestions!
