Christmas Challenge: Advent Calendars

This week is the start of December and that means the start of Advent calendars!

  Here is one that I made... I made it using things I already had on hand so it was FREE!
I used a cupboard door (check Ikea's as-is section), clothespins, primer/paint, hot glue, scrapbook papers & embellishments, and adhesive vinyl.

First I primed the cupboard door.

Then I painted it Lamb's Wool White from Dutch Boy. It is a warm white color... I love that it is white but not shape and too bright.  Since my house is filled with warm colors it works perfectly.

I sanded the edges to give it distressed look.

I also brushed on a stain I made from paint and water (50% of each) and wiped it off with a paper towel.  This gives it a nice aged look.

While the paint was drying I made these envelopes with my Silhouette... I love my silhouette! This library envelope came with the silhouette.

I embellished each envelope to make each one a little different.

I hot glued the clothespins to the cupboard door.  I tried to space them out as evenly as possible.

I cut out the vinyl with my Silhouette for the middle.

I am going to add a bible verse and a little treat to each envelope for each day.
Now I am excited to see your advent calendars!  Feel free to link up older post as long as they are an advent calendar.  

This Linky party is for advent calendars ONLY!
