Advent Invent

Advent Calendar

Summer is finally here … and Christmas is just around the corner!

I was keen to instigate the tradition of an Advent Calendar for Poppy this year and started looking on Pinterest for inspiration.  I came up with the idea of using paint samples and so after a visit to my local hardware store to surreptitiously collect the colours, I was underway.

I kept the sugary treats to a minimum and invested in stickers, rubbers and little toys instead.  With the use of wooden craft pegs I attached the paint sample and treats to the red and white cord strung between our internal doors, with Nynke Green indicating Santa’s arrival.

I don’t think I have really nailed it though because my friends that have popped over have all asked what am I planning to paint?!  Boo hoo!

I think I need to add numbers and a couple of sprigs of holly to really get into the Christmas spirit and make it obvious!  What do you think?
