one of my many crafting goals is to make an advent wall hanging or cushion (made from fabric and possibly quilted). i remembered this goal about a week ago, realising that i was again too late to have it finished for the start of december. oops. so instead, i thought i'd compromise and make a 12 day advent calendar for this year instead.
this project is a great way to add some festive decoration to your house and is also really easy to customise, i actually kept changing my mind on how to do it! the board i have used is a white board on the reverse side, but you could use a pin board, or even an empty frame as your starting point.
what you will need:
pin board (i covered mine in book pages left over from my diy wrapping paper but you could use christmassy wrapping paper!)
pegs- 100 for £1 at poundland
paint- i used white, gold and silver
felt tip pens
brown paper money envelopes- 100 for £1 at poundland
sweets/treats for your envelopes
also, if you like the number templates i have used, i've made them available for you to download here and here.
if you decide to give this diy a go, let me know or tweet me a photo as i'd love to see :)
