DIY: advent calendar

As promised yesterday I'm sharing my advent calendar that I made for Israel. I used some thin sheet metal & a large hole punch to make the tags with a permanent marker for the numbers. Then I tied each bag with some twine and a tag and hung 12 on each side of the antlers rack.

  20. I LOVE this idea! Very sophisticated, but still simple and inexpensive. The paper bags give you a little more room for including some larger treats and gifts, too. I just made and advent calendar from old watchmaker tins, but only because I had them already (used them for scrapbooking storage at one time).
