Christmas countdown

So you think I've been sitting around?? I saw this adorable advent calendar at Pottery Barn and decided to make one for Quinn. It is a 3-foot Christmas tree with 25 pockets to put a little something in for her every day (I never said she wasn't spoiled). So here are the pockets I've made so far.....boy is it turning out to be a lot of work!! Any ideas of what else I could put on a pocket?T? 25 is turning out to be a LOT to come up with. I'm sure you're wondering why I don't just copy pockets from the pottery barn one....well, I have and I'm still out of ideas. Nothing too difficult--I'm not that good.

Perhaps you could add a baby Jesus, wise men or container of Frankencense. Of course, these may be a different "look" than you already have. The ones you did are absolutely wonderfully cute!!!

How about a snowflake? Or an Angel? or a sleigh? It is so cute! What a good idea! I may have to copy this one! How are you going to hang it?
