Christmas Advent Cones on a glittery branch, burlap trees and a free printable!

24 Nov
I love my cookie sheet advent calendar, but I wanted another advent that I could use for little treats, special notes and other small holiday goodies. 
So I cut down two very large branches from a tree in my backyard, spray painted them silver and added some glitter.
 Then I used some vintage music paper and made little cones. I embellished them with trim, ribbon, flowers and vintage buttons. I used chipboard numbers and stickers for the days. 

I tried to figure out what to use for the base of the branches. I decided to cover my footed glass vase with burlap.

Then I made some burlap trees by cutting long strips of burlap and wrapping them around Styrofoam cones.
I made a template in Microsoft Publisher. If you would like to use it, click HERE. Tip: in making these cones, punch holes in the back side of the cone so it will hang straight.
 I am linking to the Kimba’s fabulous DIY Day — go over for some ingenious ideas to make your home more beautiful!

 And, there is a wonderful party going on over at Today’s Creative Blog. Go over and see all of the awesomeness!
