Snowing presents - Advent calendar

It´s mid-November. Gosh! Time to start planning Advent, our favourite time of the year. We wanted to make a long lasting Advent Calendar. We´ve created a scene where two kids are jumping up to reach the presents. This is an easy and inexpensive project. Bring your kids along, and we´re sure your calender will look fabolous!

Good luck!

You´ll need
A large piece of fabric. We used linen.
Felt
Textile glue
Small plastic rings
Scissors
Needle
Thread
Black pen
Sequins

How you´ll do it
Start sewing the edges around the calender. Tuck them in and sew, preferably using a sewing machine.
Use the scissors to make your motives. Use the textile glue and place your figures where you´ll like. Make a pen/marker to draw the eyes.
When it comes to the landscape, it´s important that the pieces goes all the way to the bottom and to the sides to avoid funny dents.Make as many valleys and mountains you´d like.
Use some glue to put some sequins on your piece to create a snow effect.
Sew the small rings on to the calendar, 24 in total. Use white thread.
Make some pressies and write numbers on them.
Yey! We´re looking forward to December 1st now!
