DIY Paper Stockings Advent Calendar


Merry Christmas!!!!

We started the month putting up the Advent Calendar. I spent two days making these paper socks, from an outline hubby made. Two days. And I'm glad I finished it on time.



This is the template hubby made for me to trace and cut. It was made in such a way that when you fold it makes a little envelope at the back where we can put little inserts that suggest fun activities for the whole family  favorite goodies and special treats for Little S and Kuya I. :)

Template

Cut

Fold


Embellish. Embellish. Embellish. Oh, the numbers were cut out by Kuya I and Little S helped paste it. It was one fun crafty event for all of us. :)



Everyday Kuya I and Little S are excited for Christmas countdown. Eager to see whats in store for them on that day. This is one Christmas tradition we all enjoy as a family...

What are your Christmas Traditions? Please do share. :)

I am still new to the idea of an advent calendar. My friend made one for her daughter, too.

A Christmas countdown! That's cool! I'm sure the kids are always looking forward to this every year. How long have you been doing this?

It is so nice that everyone had their part doing these stockings. I love the idea. my daugter has a christmas socks too but she is too young to understand.

we just simply put our old christmas tree, christmas lights, a big parol in our porch, prepare for gifts and cards, complete the simbang gabi and the grand noche buena salu-salo

You are so creative. I'm sure your daughter love the colorful stockings. By the way, off topic lang, I love your family pictures on the header! :)

Really sounds like fun! Someday gusto ko din ng advent calendar pag may kids na ko. :)

Olga said...

Wow! This is a great idea! Aside from hearing mass, Noche Buena, and gift-giving, we have no other special family tradition for Christmas. It'd be fun to do this as well. :)
