Advent Idea

Yeah, I know it's a little late for it this year (unless you do a 7 days before Christmas count down), but I saw this cute idea on TV and thought I'd share with those interested!


Clear plastic ornaments (I've seen them at JoAnn's all year)
Gold tinsel
Assorted small toys or candies
Circle reinforcement stickers
White vinyl numbers, 1-2” in height
Gold ribbon

Getting Started

1. Place tinsel and gift inside ornament (hiding the gift as much as possible).
2. Attach gold sticker to the bottom of the ornament to ensure it remains closed.
3. Attach vinyl number to the front of the ornament.
4. Cut a piece of gold ribbon and thread through hole on top of ornament to hang.
