Countdown the days left until xmas with this quick and easy kid-friendly advent calendar craft.
You will need:
Step 1 Paint the trellis in Resene Poppy. For best result, apply two coats allowing proper drying time in between.
Step 2 Paint designs or numbers on the small calico drawstring bags, numbers, patterns, festive words whatever you like. Be sure to slide a piece of A5-sized cardboard inside the bag first so the paint doesn’t bleed through to the other side. Allow paint to dry completely. To speed things up, you can use a hair dryer.
Step 3 Fill your bags with sweet treats, jokes, erasers, pencils or other small gifts.
Step 4 Peg each bag onto the trellis with the small wooden pegs.
Step 5 Starting on December 1st, remove a bag to reveal a surprise each day in the lead up to Xmas!
