It is already tradition in our home that the kiddoes have a small Christmas tree in their room in this season. Why not use it as an advent calendar, where the days of the calendar are the ornaments? The process is very easy, you can really do it in an hour. First I painted 24 boxes of matches on white.
After the painting was dry I started decorating with American Crafts Sweater Weather Stickers, American Crafts Sweater Weather Ephemera Pack and American Crafts Sweater Joyous Alpha Thickers. These are my favorites:
I think the trick of this type of projects is no to owerthink, just go with the flow and enjoy creating. Every piece of this collection is very cute and color-coordinated, so it is very easy to work with them.
As a last step, when the boxes were ready, I placed them on the Christmas tree.
