love this since my son has nut allergies and can't have the store bought advent calendars! Handmade Christmas Advent Calendars, a great alternative to store bought calendars. Get inspired and create your own with these great tutorials and how-tos.
Shining Stars - simple tape design tree, with star garland. Washi tape would work well for this, as it wouldn't mar the wall paint. I just picked up some wide white washi tape, with "Merry Christmas" printed on it.
