Christmas Advent Calendar

Christmas Advent Calendar from mudpiestudio.blogspot.com

Today I’m sharing an advent calendar I made using garden peat pots.  

Tip: Peat pots are about $3 for a package of 12 and found in the gardening section of home improvement stores.

I started by painting Winter White acrylic paint with a foam brush onto each pot.  I didn’t cover completely – I wanted some of the original pot color to show through for a more rustic look.

I printed numbers on scrapbook paper and used my one-inch hole punch to cut them out.

I glued the scrapbook paper to office tags that already had a silver trim and ring. I found the circular tags at an office supply store.

I wrapped each pot with some jute string, using hot glue to hold in place.

Then I attached each tag with red and white baker’s twine.
