Advent Calendar

My advent calendar is up and so is the Nativity set, so now I can share a photo.


I got the idea/pattern from   http://allsorts.typepad.com/allsorts/2007/11/advent-calendar.html

I wanted it to have more of a religious tone so I used Nativity stickers for the tags:


Each pocket holds a Ghirardelli chocolate and one of the tags.  After you remove the chocolate you hang the tag from the button.


I originally tried to hang it from the Santas that are on either side of the entertainment center, but when I filled the pockets with chocolate it was too heavy and they came crashing to the floor.  I bought some little hooks with screws and put them into the entertainment center, which is holding beautifully.

I like that with this design I can change it up by making new tags or changing the ribbons between the pockets.

  3. Those pockets are so cute! I want to somehow incorporate a sweet treat and Bible verse with each day next year, as well. I like the nativity tags, too.
