So last week was a wash for posts…sorry ):  Lots going on in the Propes home in preparation for Blake’s 1st birthday party.  I will have so much to share towards the end of this week…the party was a blast!!  Stay tuned….but in the meantime here is a little peek on a DIY project I tackeld among all of the party planning and  orders I am knee deep in.

I was inspired by my blogging friend Amanda of Shindig…she made a fun advent calender and and I wanted to do the same.  I changed it up just a tad by adding fabric scraps along with the ribbon.  Ok…chicks…super easy…if you can use a pair of scissors and tie a knot…you are golden!!!  I busted out my pinking shears and went to work….I haven’t touched these babies since design school!! (;

Here are the deets:

Supplies: pinking shears, scissors, fabric scraps, ribbon, mini knitted ornaments – found at Target for $2 each, and twine

Time: 30 min

1) Cut twine to desired length 2) cut 6″ & 8″ pieces of ribbon and fabric with pinking shears and regular scissors.  3) tie your cut pieces on to the twine…I place an ornament every 4-6 pieces. 4) hang in desired location

Really…is it that simple???  YES!!!  I used the same colors that would coordinate with the rest of my holiday decor.  If I had more time, these fabulous-fresh-fun stands of fun would be all around my house!!!

Oh…I almost forgot…the advent part…the ornament that I purchased are little knitted stockings and mittens…perfect to stick a little note from santa or treat in!!  I purchased 12…to signify the “12 days of Christmas”  and… to lessen the amount of candy my kids receive in a given period of time (;  If you want to add numbers to your advent calender… you can do that too, I left mine blank.

I aslo used ribbon in colors that coordinated with the rest of my holiday decor.  So here it is!    I hope this inspires you to go and make your own version!!

p.s. This may even make an apprerance in Blake’s party!!

So fun and festive…tee-hee!!    Ok…as soon as I get pics back I will show ya’ll what I have been up to!! xoxo~rebecca
