DIY :: Holiday Advent Calender

I love making our own advent calender every year.  Last year's version was a pop out calender.  This year we decided to try something different.  This advent tree calender was easy to pull together, and looks great on the mantel, all it needs is a star on top of the tree.

Foam board
Hot glue gun
Clothes pins
Circle punch
Calender print out (see below)

1. Layout your ribbon tree on the foam board, and secure with a glue gun.
2. Arrange your clothes pins in the desired pattern, and secure with a glue gun.
3. Use the circle punch to cut out the calender, and attach to the clothes pins.
4. Decorate your tree.  We hung a few ornaments, but a star would be perfect on top of the tree. 
5. Add lil gifts and attach using the clothes pins.  Don't forget a bowl of your favorite chocolates.
