Growing up we didn’t count down to Christmas.
No reason that I can think of why we didn’t.
So a few years ago I picked this jolly Santa up at the local thrift store.
The 1st few yrs I would try really hard to find a small piece of candy for each day.
That got old really fast.
So now we use this little stuffed animal & he works great.
As it gets to about the #7 I usually panic to myself about being ready.
This is by far my FAVORITE decoration in the entire house.
Ever since Kalen & Korby were little, I have saved their artwork.
I hang it on the same wall every year.
Every year I have to remind the kids what they made.
You can find wool sweaters at the thrift store.
Wash and dry them for that felted look.
Then cut into tiny squares, poke a hole in the middle of each square.
Take a piece of floral wire and weave them onto the wire.
When its stuffed, fold the wire into a circle.
Add a bow and hang on the tree.
Isn’t that adorable?Do you use the same decor every year?
