Counting Down...

I had a piece of board left over from making closet shelves, and I have been looking at it, thinking...what could I do with a white piece of scrap wood?

I am a pinterest lover, and have enjoyed seeing the homemade advent calendars popping up.


So I took some (also leftover) clothespins and mod-podged some christmassy paper onto them.


I cut down the sides, and sanded down the edges to pretty them up a bit, then laid them out on my board. Then I didn't like it...


So I painted a wide green stripe down the center of my board.


Then I liked it, so I glued my clothespins on!


I made a thousand twenty-five craft paper envelopes...


And filled them with a santa chocolate and a felt card with a fun activity on it.


I broke out the glitter, and added my numbers.


We hung it up, and we are ready to countdown!!
