flip-top jar and pallet advent calendar

sometimes it does not take much to create something beautiful and sonetimes you even have everything you need on hand.

i had a look at my pantry and found enough bottles and jar for an advent calendar and just got started.

 this is what you need

- 24 flip-top bottles and jars

- 24 hooks

- craft paper

- scissors

- 24 gift tags

- yarn

- decoration

- pallet

this is what you have to do

- get your craft paper, your bottles and jars, the craft paper and your scissors ready

- cut 24 pieces in the size of the inside of your bottles and jars

- insert the paper, to hide the content or to use them as coupons

- get your guft tags and your yarn ready, i was lucky to get some numbered gift tags including pre-cut might need to number your tags and cut your yarn in 24 small pieces

- attach the yarn to each tag

- attach the tag to your jars and bottles

- hang the bottles and jars onto your pallet or anything else

- if you are using a pallet, you need to be careful, you might need to hang your bottles and jars onto both sides, otherwise he pallet my fall over.

- start decorating the pallet with matching light chains or christmas balls.

and that's it... another simple but yet beautiful advent calendar.

thank you very much for stopping regards...silke
