Christmas Fun-Day 7


Today's selection is:
An Advent Calendar

I saw this in the current
Martha Stewart Living.
They call it a "Minimalist
take on the holiday tradition."

All you have to do is form
the shape of a tree with
different size envelopes,
using painter's tape to
adhere them to your wall.
Then you mark them with
adhesive numbers.

Place thin lightweight
presents in each envelope
for all the enjoy!

This certainly can be adapted
to other holidays that have
"countdowns."

~Keep on Dreaming~

  1. Cute idea...especially for kids in dorms that have to stay over the holidays....I would make sure the envelopes were green though. :D Have a great day Melinda!

  5. Oooh, I hadn't seen that one! I love it. But then, I love pretty much everything Martha does! LOL Do you know, I have MS books (one is 500 different wreaths to make...okay exaggeration) way back from the 90s...years before the internet!

    Blessings,
    Val

  6. That sure is a cute idea. But I bet i'd never be able to find all those sizes of red envelopes. Wait... let me guess... she made them. ?? Oh, Martha!
