Our New Advent Calendar

Since my lovely, sweet, well-behaved dog ATE
my pottery barn advent calendar last year, I had to make a new one this year. 
I do love this one though. 
It was pretty simple to make, just 25 little pockets hot glued to a large canvas ready
for candies and chocolates.

And I made most of it from my scraps that I REALLY NEED TO USE!

The biggest purchase was the large canvas
and a package of big buttons and ric rac.

Oh and the pack of 12 snowmen for $1 at Joanns.

Some of my favorite pockets.
I had to add some mouse ears since we do live in the land of THE mouse.

The little one likes it ~ his favorite is the Santa pocket.


**Look for me tomorrow at Under the Table and Dreaming,
I will have a handmade ornament (or 2) featured for the
All Handmade 6 Days of 24 Ornaments!

Adorable. I can relate to the dog thing. One of our 2 new puppies ate an orange sized hole in our leather couch... neither one is admitting to the deed! Anyway, sorry you lost your other Advent wreath but your new one is too cute :)
