Advent Calendar

I made this Advent Calendar by making 24 small Christmas stockings and 1 extra large one out of red and green felt.



Each stocking is decorated along the top edge with different laces and trimmings. My favourite is the white pom pom trim which I've never seen back home and is a novelty for me (and so cute)


Each stocking also gets an Incomparable Christmas theme button...from Santa, snowmen and stars to candy canes, moose(s?), and angels...the only button I didn't have with me was the Christmas pudding!


To make it an advent calendar I used pre-cut luggage tags & numbered them 1-24 then attached them using mini clothes pegs to a plain cotton ribbon.


Since its adjustable, I made it extra cosy to fit the small fireplace but for a different location, I spread the stockings out and got more of a bunting look.


Once again the Christmas season is upon us...may it be a festive one for everyone.
