24 Days of Christmas: advent calendar DIY

It started with a pile of tiny red mittens, numbered 1-24. They were adorable and very useful- what could I do with them?

So I did what I always do- I found a board. I painted it white and i added some stencils to it.

And I glued 25 little tiny clothespins to it with wood glue.

And then I painted the cute little stenciled areas with acrylic paint.

And I added some vinyl to the bottom.

And I added my cute little mittens to the bottom.

I think the board is a bit narrow, and the only thing I’d change is to use a longer board to space the mittens out further. It’s kind of hard to see the numbers on them like this.

And it didnt turn out too badly. I still may change it next year, but I do think this turned out cute.
