The finger puppet Advent calendar is DONE and ready to go off to its new home! While completing this project, I discovered that spray painting is a skill that takes a little practice. (Sorry Joyce, your spool rack was my first ever attempt, and it shows.)
I purchased the blank tags, then used stamps to add the numbers to count down the days until Christmas. The tags looked pretty bland, so I grabbed a fine tip Sharpie and traced a little red border along the edges, then tied on a short piece of red and white twine to loop over the little spool posts.
They look so excited at the thought of their new home, don’t they? (And I really should rig up a light box, see my dining room intruding in the top of the picture? Sorry about that.)
My next challenge – finding a box for this and getting to the post office before it closes. Wish me luck!
