When I was growing up my mom had this felt christmas tree advent calendar with ornaments that velcro to the tree. I loved it. I would take turns with my sister putting the ornaments on the tree up until I moved out of my parents house.
I searched the internet for the same advent calendar to have at our house....for my kids, but I had no luck.
So, I did the next best thing I could think of. I searched etsy for a pattern to make my own. I found one that was very similar to the one my mom had so I purchased the pattern and told my bestie about it...becuase she had the same advent calendar that we did growing up and I knew she would want to make one for herself as well. :o)
We met up one day to buy the materials to make our own advent calendar and months and many crafting hours later, I finished our calendar...with a couple weeks to spare too, I might add! :oP
Hannah loves it and I love that she loves it. It's perfect and I look forward to the many many years we will use this advent calendar!
