Clothespin and Ribbon Advent Calendar

Even though my kid is all grown up, we still put an advent calendar up. Sometimes, I get those chocolate filled ones from Trader Joe’s and Julia eats the chocolates, but usually I make one. This year, I decided to keep things simple.

I painted some clothespins with Martha Stewart glitter paint and cut out some cardstock shapes using a template I made in Photoshop. Then, I just numbered them with a sharpie and will pin them up to a long ribbon as the days go by.

There is no chocolate, sorry. We never had chocolate in our advent calendar growing up though. Just sayin’. 😉
