This year advent begins on the 28th of November, I recieved an awesome little booklet with daily devotionals to read as we enjoy this holiday season! There are 26 days until Christmas in the advent calendar however we are doing a 24 day countdown (this is so we can use this craft every year), I will do our daily bible verse and countdown as a supplement to the fun we'll have with my new and first craft for the Christmas season!
To make your own countdown to Christmas you will need the following:
-hot glue gun
-candy (I bought 2 bags of hershey's kisses (2/$5 at walmart plus a $1 off coupon from the Sunday paper...I only used one bag!
-needle and white thread
-Avent calendar and devational booklet
-Green construction paper
Make sure you start at the end with the loop, leave about 5 inches from the loop to the first stocking.
Christmas is my favorite holiday, I cannot wait to begin the Christmas season!
