Finger Puppet Advent Calendar, DONE.

Completed Finger Puppet Advent Calendar

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!

  1. UPDATE:

    FYI::

    Sarah found a proper box and they all arrived safely!
    The pictures do NOT do this justice!!

    Thank you Sarah. It’s absolutely beautiful, and means a lot to me.

  2. Thank you, Carla and Cathe!

    Cathe, I’ve been a fan of yours for a while. I don’t even play poker but have an urge to make your poker chips, and your designs always seem to fit just right to me!

  3. Hi Sarah, Just thought I’d let you know that this is still my favorite advent calendar ever (I have all types, shapes and sizes) Some don’t even make it out for the holiday anymore because it’s just overkill – can you imagine? But THIS one always comes back out. And it’s the very last go go back in the box till next year. It still looks brand new, no wear at all. Beautifully crafted, well made and made with love!. FYI:: the grey mouse has been in my drawer since last year because thanks to Miss Maggie May he’d been kidnapped off the rack and remained hidden in her basket till February, so he never made it into the box. He’ll be joint his buddies before long ….. Thanks again. You always manage to give me reason to smile.

    • Joyce, you are the BEST! You really made my day! :) I’m so glad you enjoy them, and I love that the mouse was stolen away by one of the cats — had to be the mouse, right? I really had fun making that for you, and I love that it’s something seasonal. It’s hard to get tired of something that’s supposed to be away most of the year! I really should make us some kind of new Advent calendar for this year, because they are so much fun. The girls love it when I tape lottery tickets on the fridge for a countdown, but something handmade would be nice, too. I’ll think on it. But THANK YOU for stopping by and making me smile like this! I’m so glad it still makes you happy! :D

      • That’s so funny Sarah … I never even put it together — cat = mouse! DUH! (is duh even used anymore?) I’m sooooo old! Love your crafts. Haven’t forgotten about the Clouds. Still working on that and so much more!!
