I found some DIY Advent Calendars online and wanted to share them with you!
First, here's the one I'm doing.
Last year, I began creating this one! It's not finished, but here's what I've got!
1. Cut 50 circles of fleece; I used red, white and green.
2. Embroider numbers 1-25
3. Embellish each with stitches, ribbon, rick-rack . . . be creative!!
4. Lay a numbered circle on top of a blank circle. Blanket stitch them together on the bottom & sides. You can find a tutorial on blanket stitching and how to make these as tags or ornaments HERE.
5. I'm going to (yeah, soon!) attach them to a red & green cord & stuff 'em with chocolate!
