Instead of doing what I was supposed to do today, I decided to take a break from the chores.
When my kids were little, I used to get them one of those cardboard advent calendars with the horrible little chocolates inside. They loved counting down to Christmas and it was always the first thing they did when they came downstairs for breakfast.
Now that they are older, I thought that this one would be a little more mature for them :)
I started with this golf shadow box frame that I picked up last year. I’m glad I finally found something to do with it.
I removed several of the pegs, leaving 24. Then it got a few coats of spray paint. I thought that it wouldn’t be blingy enough, so I glued some ribbon to the back. WRONG! Eww, I hated it.
So I ripped the ribbon out. Whew, so glad I did. Now it looks much better. I used my cricut and white vinyl for the numbers. This year I’m incorporating purples into my Christmas decorating, but next year this will be easy to change out the bulbs. The lighting is horrible; I was surprised when I came up from my craft room, and it was dark out, therefore the photos are not so great. I’ll post a daylight photo another time.
