Turn your trash into treasure & your scraps into stuff.
Julie... I was JUST looking up Advent Calendar ideas! Growing up we had one that my mom made. A one dimensional felt Christmas Tree with Calendar numbers beneath it. There were Felt ornaments with a simple picture of a biblical or advent theme on top of the numbers--then each day we took turns placing an ornament on the tree...ending with the baby Jesus ornament. I've been wanting to make that too.
Molly, we had that same Advent Calendar. We always fought over wo got to put the baby Jesus on the tree. I think that "Remember the Reason for the Season" could have been hammered into our heads a little harder :)
Julie, all that I know about Advent calendars is that they better include chocolate. you're welcome.
Found this blog through Julie, so I'll let you know that my mom has a pattern for that felt Christmas Tree advent calendar (not that a pattern is really required), so I am sure you can find something very simple!
I think I am going to try this one. http://www.purlbee.com/the-purl-bee/2008/11/20/embroidered-felt-advent-calendar.htmlIt holds chocolate.
