Christmas time is quickly coming upon us. I can’t believe it almost time to start pulling out the jingle bells and holly berry. I am excited to celebrate this year with my baby who will be experiencing it for the first time. I wanted to come up with a decor item that could double as an activity for her as well, so I made an advent calendar!
This was so easy to make and it brings some bling into your holiday decor! You will need…
First, I painted my picture frame. After it was dry, I painted Mod Podge onto it and dumped my glitter on top. Be sure to put paper underneath so you can reuse your glitter. Be prepared to make a big, fat mess.
Measure the size you need the numbers to be on your ornaments. I wanted mine to be alternating colors with the days so I cut out odd numbers in one color, along with a few circles for polka dots. I used the glitter vinyl for all of my numbers.
Then, I cut out the even numbers and more polka dots in the other color of glitter vinyl.
I cut out polka dots in the two remaining colors of vinyl to add to my ornaments.
I peeled off each number and stuck it onto the ornaments, along with 5 of the polka dots in different colors to add some flavor.
Turn the picture frame so that the front part is laying down. Cut twine in different lengths to hang your ornaments with and tape them in place. I didn’t tape them in order of the days because I wanted it to be kind of a hunt for the number each day.
Repeat that step for all 12 of your ornaments and hang up the frame! I love how it turned out. I think it would be really cute to add treats or love notes in them for your kids or spouse to read everyday.
Thanks for joining me today! Now go add some glitter to your Christmas decor!
