{i craft} handmade advent calendar & mini tree skirt.

Advent Calendar

my little one is super excited to have her playroom decorated for the holidays. she loved decorating her own little mini pre-lit christmas tree and can't wait to start revealing her advent activities come december!

this past week, i crafted our very own advent calendar we can display each year. each little pocket is crafted from wool felt, sparkly white felt {numbers}, and scrap fabric i had on hand. once each pocket was created, i sewed them to one long grosgrain ribbon. our advent calendar will be chalked full of fun holiday & winter activites, both indoors & out... i thought i'd share a few from our list...

1. it's time to meet the elf on the shelf!
2. build a giant fort & have a tasty snack!
3. make a Christmas craft for your teachers at school.
4. christmas dance party! listen to christmas music & dance away...
5. curl up by the fireplace & read a new christmas book
6. hot cocoa & games night!
7. nail painting party! let's paint our nails christmas colors!
8. go for a drive to see our neighbors christmas lights
9. christmas coloring & craft night!
10. build a gingerbread house!
11. christmas movie night! open a new movie & pop some popcorn...
12. let's go sledding!

... just to name a few.

i'm also wrapping up & numbering a few christmas books and movies, both new & old, and crafts for her to open on their special day.

mini tree skirt

to go along with the playroom decor, i also crafted a quick & easy mini tree skirt to match!
