I hope you are doing well!
I appreciate you visiting today-
I wanted to share with you how I upcycled this calendar.
You will need one of these wooden
Available this tine of year at the Dollar Tree!
This is the base of our project and a good value at $1.25
They stand up on their own.
A great gift idea !
It can be personalized and used year round-
I just happened to make mine for Christmas Countdown ,
you make it your own
It could be used as a December Advent
Calendar or just leave
the date showing as Dec. 25.
You will need a cardboard cut-topper
for your calendar.
I used the cover of
The Night Before Christmas- Little Golden Book.
These books are so nostalgic and
bring back such happy memories.
This particular book was purchased for .50
to used for this project.
I removed the paper from the calendar.
It was easy to do- then covered the front
with a page from the book.
Inside of the box, I glued another picture,
I used scissors to cut the cover.
I only wanted the Santa figure.
I used a brown sharpie on the edges.
On the back side I added a scrap piece down toward the bottom
as a spacer to give Santa a 3D effect
Then I glued Santa in place.
I like Fabri-Tac but white glue
or hot glue would be fine.
I also kept the back cover of the book !
The newer books have these
mini covers pictures that I cut out for another
Christmas ornament project next week.
Come back to see!
Aren't they cute?
I decided I needed to add white glitter
to the cuffs and hat.
It's going to the Craft Show!
I know it's early for Christmas
but I wanted to share what I have been
working on this week.
I just can't help it !!
Craft show in 2 weeks!
I hope you have a great week-
