Christmas Craft Project: Advent Calendar-- think I'll sew some small, reusable cloth bags, and find a slightly different way to arrange the clothes pins, so that there's more space for the bags. Love the idea of painting the clothes pins, though!
My advent calendar consists of 24 little houses made out of paper. They can be easily folded flat for storage. Could be an easy way to create an elaborate Christmas village that is easy to store but looks fantastic and festive.
