DIY Advent Calendar


Christmas is coming and we’re prepared. This year we have an advent calendar for the first time for the little guy as he turns three. I attached clothes pins on the wall with blu-tack and hung different color envelopes. I decided blu-tack won’t stain the wall in less than a month. In each envelope I wrote the date with white marker. Every night Santa’s elf – whoever that might be – will slip a surprise inside the following day’s envelope. Still need to come up with the surprises though.

Guess where I got the inspiration… From H&M Home catalogue, this photo to be exact. I made it my own version, a Christmas tree. I just wish there was more light to photograph. I don’t know if there’s been a single day of sunshine all month. Cloudy and rainy every day. I’m telling you, I’m shooting ISO 3200.

    Heh, mulla on pojalle H&M:n kangaskalenteri, johon meinaan jotakin keksiä… Jos ei muuta, niin rusinoita. :D Ihme kyllä, meidän esiteini toivoi kalenterin jaettavaksi, että jokainen lapsista sais sieltä vuorollaan yllätyksen. Oho! Mä kun luulin, että tää olis kiva vain tollaiselle parivuotiaalle. :)
