I wanted to make an Advent Calendar this year but I didn't want to do the entire 25 days since the kids are still a little too young to understand and no patience! So I came up with my own 12 Day Countdown to Christmas Banner!
I researched many ideas on the Internet and found some real cute ones made out of toilet paper rolls. I was actually saving rolls to make a scrapbook but then decided I would attempt the banner. This is the link that gave me the inspiration for my Advent Calendar. I did several things different but overall I still was able to recycle and they are so strong. I know that once I pack this up after Christmas they will stay safe until next year!
The paper color is our Ruby collection, the decoration paper is made from our Pear and a Partridge packet. I cut up small ribbons from the burlap then added three dimensional elements for the numbers. The numbers are a bit hard to see so I may change that next year but for now I love it!
Add yummy candy and you're set!
I hope you love this as much as I do!
Merry Christmas to all!
