* DIY Advent Wreath Style #2 with Scrapbook Paper and Leftover Halloween Candy!


Here is the second DIY Advent Wreath we made
yesterday for my oldest daughter's door.


We started with a cardboard circle cut out of an old box.
and painted it green in case any of it showed through our "tubes" 
Don't think we needed to do this because after everything was crammed on there
you couldn't see any of the cardboard!


We were going to use TP tubes but this turned out to be even easier.
We just cut squares of 6" x 5" scrapbook paper from a Michael's holiday pack
("Winter Whimsy by Recollections") and stapled them into tubes.


Then, we got out the glue gun and started gluing them to the wreath form.


Next it was time to sit down with some popcorn, grape juice, and Christmas music
while we made little bundles of candy. 


We wrapped them all in tissue paper and tied the ends with yarn.
Then, slipped each little packet into a tube and secured it with a loop of tape
so it wouldn't fall out!


Her finished wreath hanging on her bedroom door -- 
ready to countdown to Christmas morning!

Happy Holidays!

Warmly,

I *love* this! An Advent calendar that doesn't break the bank! I'm thinking I could even use toilet paper tubes covered with wrapping paper scraps. Hmmm....I need to get to work. :0)
