Can you believe today is the 1st November? Time is running away with me again. I’m determind to enjoy the run up to Christmas this year, which means I need to be organised, so welcome to week 1 of ‘Counting down to Christmas’. Each week a group of bloggers organised by the lovely Rainy Day Mum will be posting a Christmas related craft giving you plenty of time to make your own and add to the linky if you wish.
We made a cracker tree calendar. First I made the crackers using small pieces of felt and elastic to tie the ends.
Then we added little treats and even some treasure hunt clues to the crackers, so on special days I can hide bigger presents around the house.
What do you think?
Do you have a homemade advent calendar? We’d love to see it?
This is a blog hop.

oh Lordy, I’d better get my skates on!!
I think this is excellent, I love that it doesn’t follow the conventional chart format.

This is so clever! I’m hoping to come up with a cute advent idea for this year.
These are adorable! What a wonderful idea!
Oh, how fun!! We have a beautiful wooden advent calendar my parents gave us. I put homemade gifts in each door each year. Usually something to create a nativity scene. Thank you so much for sharing at Sharing Saturday!
Love your felt “packages” they are too clever and looks so classy!!
Thanks for linking up to TGIF! Have a great week,
Thank you for sharing at Sharing Saturday! I did an Advent Calendar Round-Up today and featured yours.
