Advent Mantel Garland

We hope your Thanksgiving was full of family, friends, blessings and a thankful heart! 

We are sharing our Advent Mantel Garland with you today because the countdown id ready to start and we don't want to miss one single day!

You still have time to put an Advent project together before day one hits, and even if you were a day or two short, we won't tell!

To make this Advent Mantel Garland you will need:

Mini paper craft envelops

Sticker numbers. {We love these black glitter numbers we found at the craft store.}

Washi tape if Christmas festive colors

Mini clothes pins{We found ours in the scrap book section of the craft store, already decorated too!}

Something to hang tour envelopes on. We used a combination of a Dollar store candy cane tree garland, pom pom yarn and silver gift wrap ribbon

Treats for your envelops

Begin by sticking on your numbers. Or just write or stamp them onto the envelops. Whatever works best for you.

Next, apply a little Washi tape. We wanted to stick with a black, red and white theme.

Place your treats in the envelops. Attach your envelops to your string with clothes pins.

 Get ready for the countdown!

Just love the all ready decorated clothes pins! 
Saved a ton of time not having to paint them.

Do you have a special Advent radiation in your family that you look forward to each Christmas? 

Whatever happens, conduct yourselves in a manner worthy of the gospel of Christ. Then, whether I come and see you or only hear about you in my absence, I will know that you stand firm in one spirit, contending as one man for the faith of the gospel without being frightened in any way by those who oppose you. This is a sign to them that they will be destroyed, but that you will be saved — and that by God.
Philippians 1: 27-28

  1. Love how this turned out! Visiting from Lil Luna...Thanks for sharing!

  2. I've just got our deckies out and found something similar to this I'd made last year and forgotten about! Not as beautifully finished as yours (I vaguely remember making it in a hurry) I love the way you've strung this up with the different cords etc. beautiful.

  3. This is so adorable! I want to make a little sack advent next Christmas!

  4. Very fun and I love the mantel!! Best wishes, Linda
