diy advent calendar

i'm coming into this advent thing a little late. i saw some i liked last year, but they had a little toy for each day, and goodness knows we have enough trinkets. i decided to make my own little advent garland to help the boys have some sense of time concerning christmas. every day they see all of these beautiful things all around and ask "is TODAY christmas?".

i printed out scripture verses (the christmas story) and taped one inside each ring counting down to the day. they will tear one off every morning and my oldest can practice his reading. they'll have fun watching the garland get shorter and shorter...
