Serendipity Experience - 14 Make a Vintage Advent Calendar

5:54 PM


Every year I make an advent calendar ready for the start of December. My challenge this year was to create a Calendar with a vintage look, inspired by the beautiful book Vintage Inspirations. It was so simple to create, yet effective and decorative in the process. Whilst I made some of the decorations these were intermingled with tree ornaments I have purchased in previous years. It is my intention to use a lovely "Santa Key" as the marker to mark off each day as the month unfolds. Last year I made little boxes for each day in which I place a small treat. I love the way the children race home to see what is in today's box ( regardless of how old they are becoming!).
