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 
junk styled 
Advent Calendar 
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 
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...
