Advent Calendar – up and ready for December countdown!

Fantastic RibbonsI have all the Advent boxes finished and filled now…this is how I did it.

I used a bodkin to thread the ribbon (from the amazing people at Fantastic Ribbons!)

I threaded one end of the ribbon (I choose The Holly and the Ivy – glorious satin – traditional and matches the green and black theme I have planned for my lounge) through the hole and then pulled the other end through as in the pic.

Ages later I had all 25 with black or green ribbon – numbered and decorated with stickers – today I have hung them up…

I am a poor photographer – they look much better than the pics!

From December the First I shall remove one each day and replace with one of my vintage baubles.
