So today we thought it would be fun to showcase Christmas Decorations for the Holiday season. There is a great line up of wonderfully talented ladies who have made awesome decorations to share with you.
I made this Advent Calender for my oldest daughter, Jayden (23 months old on Dec 11).
wood board (mine is an extra shelf from the garage)
white spray paint
25 clothes pins
hot glue gun & glue
adhesive (atg gun & zig glue)
Sure Cuts A Lot 2.0
I started by spray painting the shelf white and letting it dry. Then I painted a coat of red paint over top of the white. While the red paint dried I cut out shapes in the vinyl using sure cuts a lot and my Cricut.. I cut out "Jayden" and some angels. Then I put the vinyl "Jayden" on the board where I wanted it and spray painted the board white again. Once the white was done drying I peeled up the vinyl and "Jayden" was in red. Then I placed the 2 vinyl angels on where I wanted them.
I cut small strips of paper to fit over the clothes pins and used modge podge to adhere the paper on. I cut some edged circles, normal cirlces and all the numbers I needed for the advent calender from Sure Cuts A Lot in different colors. I used my ATG gun to adhere the circles together and some Zig glue to put the numbers on. On half of the stockings I tied ribbon or Bakers Twine on to make them longer and hang lower than other stockings so you could see them all. I hot glued the tags onto the stockings. I lined all the clothes pins up on the board where I wanted them and hot glued them down to the board. I then clamped the stockings onto the board. :) Hope you enjoyed my project.
