Pop Crate Advent Calendar (the no candy kind!)


I posted this project on Instagram along with the process to make it in my stories there.  


I saved those stories to one of the highlights so you can go take a look if you'd like to make your own.


I'd had this idea for so long!  


So I was pretty happy to finally bring it to life.


I used vintage music, calendars, and my own hand printed and painted paper to make the collages for the one side.  


On the other side I glued vintage jewelry pieces so day by day, you reveal the sparkle.


I chose gold, silver, red, and green jewelry along with a couple of religious medals.


A couple of years ago, I made a really scrappy advent calendar as a gift for a friend.  You can see it here.  That was a lot of fun to make too!

I also made this one in 2010...how was that so long ago?!  I ended up gluing all the pieces in place and I still put it out every year and really enjoy it even if we can't "count down" with it.

And then there is this one too, that I still put candy in for the youngest two kids. :) 


This one will be for sale at Old Cottonwood this advent. 


Have a great week!
