I found this Advent Calendar in plain pine at my local Michael’s store. I decided to paint it a “blueish green” with a white top coat. I then sanded it down in spots to make it look weathered.
I covered the drawers with scrapbook paper and added number stickers.
This was a fun and relatively easy DIY craft. The kids look forward to the new surprises each day of December!
What you will need to complete this project:
Advent calendar, paint, sandpaper, scrapbook paper, glue stick, scissors, number stickers.
I hope you can use this idea for one of your own advent traditions!
