This is the very first Christmas that we have really had the chance to decorate since we have been married. The last few years we have moved so MANY times that we just didn’t bother to decorate. So like many young couples who don’t have a money tree in their backyard & do not believe in using credit cards we made the choice to DIY most of our christmas things. It is been a blast!!
Materials needed to make Advent:
- A piece of wood (whatever size you decide to use will word fine)
Paint your pins or you could use mod podge & put some fabric or scrap paper on them instead. I painted the majority of mine red & just a few white for a little variation.
Next, I lined up all of my stencils above my board. Then I went to stenciling. Luckily I used acrylic red paint & not something more permanent like the white paint because take a look at the picture below…. look closely… I missed number 11 !!! I had to get a wet towel to wipe off 11-13 not just ONCE but i did it TWICE!! Seriously!
