Advent Calendar Goodness

Martha's Little Drummer Display

This is a decoration in the current issue of Martha Stewart, but I think it will make a cute advent calendar. It’s a few branches spray painted white with little drum ornaments made from miniature wooden boxes. I’m going to head to the craft store on Saturday to pick up supplies and try my hand at it. Hopefully it doesn’t turn out super hokey, as it will be December 1 and I won’t have any time, once again, to put something together. I’ve been aiming to make an advent calendar since I started this blog, so fingers crossed.

I did scour the Web for some great alternatives, if you’re interested in making one yourself. There’s a great tutorial on a stocking garland advent calendar (25 handmade miniature stockings, oh my!) over at Kiddley, courtesy of Soule Mama. Hop Skip Jump tried her hand at it, and it’s looking charming. There’s this idea to wrap mini presents and hang them. Wise Craft’s advent tree from last year. Both of these are gorgeous hanging cloth wall calendars, similar to what I had as a kid: from Pink Chalk Studio and over at Wren’s Nest. I’m considering abandoning the little drummer boy idea for this wreath made with watchmaker tins. It’s just so cute.
