I cannot believe it’s almost December. Time to start counting down the days until Christmas!
And I can’t think of a better way than with an advent calendar. But not a typical advent calendar!
Here’s a sneak peek at our Christmas porch decorations, including a pair of advent trees flanking the front door.
They’re hung with handmade wood slice Christmas tree ornaments that are so easy to make.
I didn’t even think a full tutorial was necessary!
The following supply list may contain affiliate links.
Paint each disc with numbers 1 through 24, using white craft paint or a chalkboard marker.
When the paint has dried completely, drill a small pilot hole in the top edge of each disc and add a small screw eye hook. Thread holiday ribbon through the eye hooks and finish with a bow, if desired. (Use hot glue to attach the bows the the ribbon and to hide the screw eye hooks.)
You can add a numbered ornament to the tree every day, or you can hang them all on Dec. 1 and remove one every day until Christmas.
Or do what I’ve done and spread the ornaments around the tree in no particular order and make a game out of hunting for each day’s ornament.
I’m a big fan of wood slice crafts, and I just love these Christmas tree ornaments. I think they’re perfect for our front porch, where I try to keep the decorations natural, simple and vintage in style.
You’ll be able to see more of our front porch decorated for Christmas if you stop back by on Tuesday, Dec. 2, for the Home for the Holidays Blog Tour.
