I absolutely love Advent Calendars to count down until Christmas. We all know that Christmas comes really fast and part of the fun is looking forward to celebrating the Birth of Jesus. I think a lot of Advent Calendars focus on more presents instead of the true message for the season so I wanted to make something quick and easy that would fulfill that.
I found the (yes, I finally found the link!) the printable cards from One Dog Woof.
I made it super simple just by taking a piece of burlap and sewing a Christmas fabric trim around the sides. I then hot glued it around a stick I found out in the yard. The mini-clothespins were glued on to hold the Scripture verses. I printed the scripture verses and then glued them onto red and green scrapbooking paper. Then the dates were written on the back.
Then as the month goes along I am turning them over each day.
Close up of the verses.
And no craft project is complete without an animal lying on top of it. Never fails.
