Im super happy to share with you this nifty little DIY that I put together for The Urchin Collective.
Christmas is my favourite time of the year by far! Decorating, Christmas parties, gift giving.... its fun and you can make it extra special with a little DIY.
Now if you have been following this blog at all, you will no doubt be aware that I like to make things that are easy, fun and colourful.... Oh and I love stamping with potatoes! No seriously.... its a lot of fun!
For this DIY advent calendar you will need....
- 24 small cotton muslin bags, I got mine from Blank Goods, make sure you fold some paper towel into each bag before stamping, this will ensure the paint does not go through to the other side.
- number stamps, these are from Blank Goods again.
- a stamp pad
- some neon/coloured paint, I used my screen printing ink but you could use acrylic paints
- a sponge
- a potato and small knife
Carefully and slowly cut out your tree shape. Using a spoon, evenly spread some of the pink paint onto the sponge, you don't need very much. Grab 9 of your muslin bags and start stamping your pink christmas trees onto them. Now leave them to dry with the paper towel still inside.
When you are ready to move onto the next colour, just wash your potato, rinse your sponge and away you go. Play it safe and wait until the trees are completely dry before you stamp the numbers.
Once your bags are all dry its time to fill your bags with goodies....
Now hang some where out of reach.... and count the days until December 1!
Pretty cute don't you think? And for a little effort you have an Advent Calendar you can use over and over again!
