12 Days of Christmas Advent Calendar + DIy Decor Tape Wooden Truck Model

Hi!  Today, I am sharing a new Hazel & Ruby project, a 2015 version of an Advent Calendar, '12 Days of Christmas'.

Each year, I challenge myself to create a new Advent Calendar, with a Tina twist.  My kids are grown so I don't have the fun of the daily ritual of opening the advent to reveal the days goodies.

But that doesn't stop me from wanting to create a calendar, hoping to share inspiration for those with young children who enjoy the daily fun.

  
To create my 2015 version, I used four of my favorite new Hazel & Ruby DIY Decor Tapes:  
Scandinavian Sweater
Deer
Brown Kraft Plaid
Gold Confetti Dot

To create the base for my '12 Days of Christmas' Advent, I re-purposed the wood panel used for my Halloween project, shown here.

I removed the Halloween DIY Decor Tape and replaced it with the above Christmas styles.

To create my advent boxes, I covered each with DIY Decor Tape and Glitter.

  





I found this super cute '12 Days of Christmas' printable on Etsy for the lid of each box.  I printed them to size and adhered them to each box.


But the fun didn't stop there. Using the same DIY Decor Tape and a model truck kit, I created a cute little accent piece to go with my calendar.





 Adhering the tape to the wood truck is super easy and forgiving if you mess up.  :)

I added fun little embellishments and done!
 



Still looking for more inspiration?  Here's links to the Advent's I've created in past years.
