Here's an easy Christmas craft that will help count down the days to Christmas. An Advent Calendar.
a long strip of red or green felt, or use a patterned fabric
25 large flat buttons - labeled 1 - 25 with a permanent marker
red or green yarn
pretty picture of Christmas scene like Nativity
Glue the Christmas scene to the top of the fabric.
Sew in 25 pieces of yarn that you will tie the buttons to. Sew in a Christmas pattern like a star, tree, bell.
Glue a pocket to the back of the fabric to hold the buttons after you untie them.
Each day beginning Dec 1, untie a button and countdown the days to Christmas!
Another easy Christmas craft is an Advent Candle Wreath.
Let's keep it simple, so we start with a store bought wreath.
Set 3 purple and 1 pink candle securely around the wreath. Put them in candle holders to make sure they are stable.
Add a large white pillar candle to the center of the wreath.
The evergreen and the unending circle of the wreath represent everlasting life - that baby Jesus came to give us.
The 4 candles represent the four Sundays before Christmas - the Advent season. The candles symbolize the light of the world - JESUS!
Light one candle before family dinner each Sunday before Christmas.
Then on Christmas day, light the center candle, repesenting the arrival of the Light of the World.
