Holiday Star Christmas Countdown


I want to share another advent calendar I made for Creative Embellishments. You can see the other advent calendar here.

Olivia wanted to try and make a star pattern for the next Advent calendar. This one proved to be a little more tricky. But I let her mess around with the pipes to see if she could figure it out, and she did. The only difference is that there is actually 25 days on this one, so just a little variation of the true advent calendar . One of the Aunties gets an extra special treat.

After we had Adam cut the PVC pipe, we added the paper and glue it all together, We set it aside and let it dry overnight before any moving of this rather large project. That also has to hold various items like homemade caramels, lip glosses, doggie bones and mini bottles of wine.

Here is a quick video of how this all came together.


Using the Christmas Countdown Set, I simply used a spray and painted on the chipboard to  add some colour to it. I did the same with the Holly and Berries Flourish.


I added the 2018 Chipboard to the piece. Olivia wants to start a new tradition, the advent calendars need to be re-stuffed and passed on to a new persons next year. I think it’s a great idea.

I hope you all have a great holiday season and great new beginning to the New Year.
