Advent calendar DIY.

Advent-Calendar-by-Little-Big-BellBetter late than never! I thought I’d show you the Advent calendar I made the kids this year.

I wanted to do something colourful, so I decided to do some Ombre effect water colouring on tags stamped with numbers.

At the back of each tag is a cryptic treasure hunt trail to follow.

The cards can also be taped to the wall in a Christmas tree shape.

Hope you like my simple idea. Wishing you a wonderful week ahead.

    Geraldine, you are very enterprising! What a good mum you are!Nice clean sharp colours – they would look good on the wall in a Christmas tree shape!
    Wishing you a very happy Christmas from Melbourne, where it’s hot and humid one day and raining the next!

        Thanks Geraldine. I haven’t been commenting for quite a while! I’ve still been reading and enjoying though. Hope you get some rest from work over Christmas! I’m sure the house and your presents will have that Geraldine styling!
