Pretty Little Studio: Advent Calendar

Sunday, December 13, 2020

Happy Sunday, y'all!  I'm just stopping in today to share a project that I had up on the Pretty Little Studio blog late last week.  I was inspired by a single package of the Christmas Cheer: Countdown Die-Cut Tags to create an advent calendar.  Check it out!

I started this project by spray-painting a kraft-colored, advent calendar, that I purchased from Hobby Lobby, inside and out, in white.  I then die-cut half circles, to match the tops of the calendar drawers themselves, in the tops of each of the tags.  Once everything was secure, I splattered the drawers with Titanium White, acrylic paint.  Then, once everything was dry and although it is difficult to tell here, I added lots of extra details with glitter for snow and fluffy trims...

Glossy Accents for eyes, noses, mouths, berries, buttons, and bells...

and Baker's Twine bows throughout.

A couple, layered, wire-rimmed bows top the calendar and complete the look.

I hope my project inspires you to create a little something festive for your own Christmas celebrations.  Thanks so much for visiting, friends!  Have a blessed season!
