AW: My Handmade Advent

Here is what the final picture will be:

And here are the daily "envelopes":

image 

Each day they will open a new piece to the nativity and we have scripture to go with it and a new Christmas song to learn each night.  I'm quite excited.  I'm not completely finished with all the daily envelopes, but I figure I still have a little bit of time to work on each one.  I think this year I'm going to hide the envelopes on the tree so they have to find it each day, but next year I imght hang them up as garland.

  • That looks awesome! Way to go. I'm sure your children will love it. I still have fond memories of going through our advent "calendar" during the Christmas season.

    I wish I was as crafty as you ladies are!

  • Looks wonderful! Very creative. I love how you're incorporating the bible verses and songs into it and teaching your kids what Christmas is really about.

  • Wow, that's awesome!

  • I love it!!  Great job! Did you buy a pattern or did you do this on your own.  I would love to copy yours!  Would you mind sharing what verses and songs you are using?
