Auden ‘Remy’ Spike Necklace – shopbop.comI saw this on pinterest and I think it’s such a great idea! It’s a daily calender that is reused each year and gets better the longer you use it. Each day you write the year and something that happened that day like, “(Child’s name) took her first steps.” Imagine how neat it would be in 10 years. – Use the cute porcelain berry cartons.

1st Day of Christmas…

On the first day of Christmas my true love made for me

a super cute advent calender, so I had fun things for all of the other days!

I have decided that I needed to do a “12 days of Christmas” with fun things to do or make (or buy) until the big day…so here we go! Enjoy!

I found this on pinterest and followed the link to www.cantstopmakingthings.com

So here are the really easy instructions and you can follow here or go to the website for other awesome ideas! Now you can have fun treats and hide little goodies or ideas for the rest of the month!

Materials:
5 jumbo weekly pill boxes
white spray paint for plastic
small wooden beads
small screws
various colored tissue papers
masonite ( foam core, heavy chipboard)
white glue
black permanent marker
1″ wide ribbon
rub-on letters
wood putty or caulk
acetone
tools:
utility knife
screw driver
Use the utility knife to cut off two boxes of each pill container, leaving 5 per. Use the acetone to remove the lettering and the sand paper to sand off the braille bumps (if any). Glue the boxes to the masonite backing. Screw the beads onto each box as knobs, screwing from the inside of each opening. Using caulk or wood putty, fill in each outside bead hole.
Spray the entire thing white. Glue tissue paper to the inside of each opening.  Use a permanent marker to follow the indentation around each opening. Glue the ribbon around the entire calendar to hide the seams. Using rub-on lettering or rubber stamps (use StazOn ink), place a number in the lower right hand side of each little box. Place small goodies in each opening.

You can purchase this cute one here, if you don’t want to make one!
