Holiday Decorations - Over The Door Advent Calendar
The theme this month for The DCC group is: Holiday Decorations.
I figured it was a good time if any to make this advent calendar. Over the years I have made and used numerous types. This year I wanted something I could use all year, and not just for Christmas.
I wanted something I could use to count down Birthdays, the last month of School and other special events. So I came up with this idea.
I bent the wire hanger in half and 'hung' it on the wreath hooks. Then I threaded the craft wire through the top holes of the organizer and onto the wire hanger until all was secure.
I created 24 numbered ornaments and trees for the pockets using a variety of craft supplies and tools.
Winter Glitter Snowflake and Metallic Pink Dew Drops. I placed them together as show and added some 'soft' velcro to the back.
The Robins Nest, my studio stash and rare Sizzix dies- ornaments and a tree.
In other pouches I added hot wheel cars, Star Wars snowflakes I cut out and for the rest, I added the bit of tissue to make them "look" full until I found the right treat to add.
