Day 31: Hi, friends! I’m Lacy from Living on Love where I blog about all kinds of things – pregnancy & parenting, cooking tasty food, DIY projects, sharing inspiration, saving moo-lah, trying to make a tiny difference in this world, taking a stab at green living, and more! Aside from my jobs as teacher, momma, and wife, I have a little design business on Etsy. Visit my Adair Designs shop to see my other creations. Today, I am giving you a FREE Advent Paper Chain to download and create with your family. Advent is a special time of year and so I created this cute calendar that also serves as a fun decoration.
Step One: Print your paper chain. You need a color printer and any type of white paper. You could use a thicker cardstock if you want, but I just used regular old computer paper.
Step Two: Cut out the paper chain strips! Use cutesy scissors or a paper cutter to get a good, even line.
Step Three: Write your daily Advent activities on the back. Think of all the simple things you could do… Some of ours include driving around to look at lights, making oreo shakes with Christmas oreos, reading the Chrsitmas story, filling the stockings, writing a letter to Santa, etc…
Step Four: Assemble! You can use a stapler, but I highly recommend using tape or glue. Make sure your dates are in order, 1-25!
Step Five: Hang! This would be cute on a small tree, hanging from a window, lining a mantle, etc. We decided to hang ours in our daughter’s nursery. She loves looking at it from her crib.
Thanks, Chelsey, for letting me share on your blog today! And thank YOU for reading! Stop by my blog and say hello! I’d love to see pictures of your finished paper chains, too!
