Every year we do an advent calendar as a countdown to Christmas! I fill the packages with treats, toys, and activity cards to mix it up and keep it interesting. I came across this, this, and this on Pinterest and decided that building a wooden advent tree as our calendar would be perfect this year!
To build the tree, I sourced scrap wood from old pallets and cut them from large to small—you can cut the wood any size you'd like. I then sanded wood and covered it with a matte sealer. The beauty of this project is that you can make the tree as straight and clean or as wonky as rough as you'd like. After the tree was built, I wrapped up small prizes and treats and made activity cards to hang from push pins.Now we are just eagerly awaiting December first so our countdown can officially begin! xo.
