Advent Calendar

Today is the start of the advent calendar.  I finished the one I mentioned I was making last weekend and I think it turned out not too bad.  The ivory background and all of the numbered pockets are made of felt.   I used glitter glue for the numbers and made the pockets a bit on the larger side (5″x5″) so that more than one item could be placed in each pocket (one for each of my kids).  I wanted to keep it fun and not worry so much about perfection.  It was easy to make, but a bit time consuming – lots of sewing involved for the pockets.

Here is an overall view of our back entrance where I placed the calendar.  The top of the calendar is held up with a stick I found in our yard.  Hopefully, putting this up every year will become a tradition in our family.
