Junkers United with a Junk Lovers Advent Calendar6:00:00 AM
Welcome to our latest and greatest edition of Junkers United!
I'm Susan from Homeroad and I
create projects from cast-offs. I re-create
items found in the trash or thrift stores and
repurpose them so they can be reloved.
Read along while I show you how I created a beautiful
using repurposed items.
Stay with me and at the end I will link you to 13 other
fabulous bloggers who each created a Christmas
project to inspire you.
Today, taking inspiration from
Cottage and Bungalows December magazine,
I repurposed an old shot glass wall shelf
and turned it into an advent calendar.
I began this project by painting an old shot glass
wall shelf with white paint. White paint instantly
transformed an old cast-off into a blank canvas...
Filling the spaces with fun junk was the best part!
Using small boxes found at Michaels
and a package of white stickers,
I created the beginning of
a month long family Christmas celebration.
Each day from December 1st through Christmas Eve,
children open a box to reveal a small gift or candy treat.
To give this project my favorite junk style... some days a hand made ornament created from something rusty or found in the workshop takes the place of a gift box. Strings are attached
to hang the ornament on the tree.
An advent calendar is an inexpensive and beautiful way
to celebrate the holiday season with your family.
I would love for you to follow Homeroad
And now more great inspiration from my friends...
