DIY Craft Stick Advent Calendar

DIY Craft Stick Advent Calendar @themerrythoughtSharing an advent calendar post today which means Christmas isn’t too far away. In fact, it’s only 38 days away. Dang! Just another year that I didn’t get ahead on anything I wanted to do or make for the holidays so I’m sure I’m going to be busting my butt for the next few weeks. (As well as maybeee moving into my cousin’s new house finally?!) So to slow things down and be a bit more intentional during the holiday season, I’ve been working on a couple new advent calendars to try out this year!DIY Craft Stick Advent Calendar @themerrythoughtDIY Craft Stick Advent Calendar @themerrythoughtWhat you need:
-Craft sticks
-Faux greens
-Scissors and/or wire snips
-Hot glue gun
-Fine permanent marker
-String
-Washi tape

How to make it:
-Write out your advent day numbers on the bottom of the craft sticks and write in the activities on the backside of the stick.
-Cut your greens to length – about 1″ shorter than the craft stick.
-Use hot glue gun to glue greens in place above the numbers you wrote.
-Cut a string for each stick and attach string to the top of the back side of the sticks using a dab of hot glue.
-Arrange the sticks on the wall and secure each string with a piece of washi tape.DIY Craft Stick Advent Calendar @themerrythoughtDIY Craft Stick Advent Calendar @themerrythoughtDIY Craft Stick Advent Calendar @themerrythoughtHere are a few other advent calendars we’ve shared: Chalkboard Advent Calendar, Wooden Tree Advent Calendar, Matchbox Advent Calendar. And this post also has some advent activity ideas at the bottom!

    Sarah - This looks so cool! I love that it doesn’t take up all that space (as mine this year – worst idea ever!).

    Also it’s really focussed on activities and not presents – I try to mix that up as well and get both.ReplyCancel
