Felt Advent Calendar | DCVW

Hey everyone! I'm back today with my second Christmas project for DCVW, and if you missed my first post click here to see the scrapbook page I created!

DCWV also sent me one of their project packs, and I received the Felt Tree Advent calendar.

The pack comes with everything you need to create one of these calendars, and it was so easy and fun to put together. I think it would also be the perfect activity to keep the kids busy on a rainy afternoon!

The pack comes with pre-cut felt pieces, some ribbon, beads and gems as well as instructions on how to put everything together. But what I really appreciated about the pack, is that there were more shapes than I needed to create the calendar. So I've saved all of those cute little ornaments to use on my other Christmas crafty projects.

Whilst you can just use some hot glue to adhere everything, of course I couldn't resist doing some hand-stitching! I used a simple running stitch to adhere all of the square pockets onto the backing piece, and I love the cute texture and detail this adds.

I also stitched on the ornaments, using different types of stitches like a blanket stitch on the mittens and french knots to create cute little faces for the gingerbread men!

The pack also comes with velcro dots which I hot glued one half of onto the back of the ornaments and the opposite half onto the green felt tree.

I've actually gifted this calendar to a friend who is a teacher. And what she is going to do is put all of the ornaments into the pockets and each day let a child pop that day's ornament somewhere on the tree! She's really excited about it, and I'm sure the children will love it.

Thanks DCWV for the gorgeous Christmas supplies and putting me in a very festive spirit! I hope you're inspired to get crafty this Holiday season with some DCWV goodies!

  1. heal from broken heart" I wish I could find the right words to say how thankful i am to this love spell caster called Dr Ibrahim for bringing back my husband after he left me and our 3 kids for another woman, After 12years of marriage me and my husband has been into one quarrel or the other until he finally left me and moved to California to be with another woman.

I contacted him and he told me what to do and i did it then he did a Love spell for me. 28 hours later, my husband really called me and told me that he miss me and the kids so much, So Amazing!! So that was how he came back that same day, with lots of love and joy, and he apologized for his mistake, and for the pain he caused me and the kids. Then from that day, our Marriage was now stronger than how it were before, all thanks to Dr Ibrahim. he is so powerful and i decided to share my story on the internet that Dr Ibrahim is real and powerful spell caster who i will always pray to live long to help his children in the time of trouble, if you are here and you need love spell to get ex lover back forever or save your marriage fast.

  2. I have been casting spells for many years and I have helped many people, I might be able to help you too. I am honest, and I genuinely care for all the clients who choose me to cast a spell for them.

    If you have any questions about Love, Money, curse, protection, bad luck, divorce, court cases, or about me please call or email me. I really want you to feel comfortable before moving forward with any spells, or other services. I will take the time to explain things to you and provide you with honest advice, to what is best for your situation. I will not pressure you into having a spell cast, I will leave that decision up to you, and when or if you decide to move forward, I might be able to help you.
    I will respect your Privacy. I will not seek to obtain any of your personal information beyond what you might voluntarily offer and all information you might give me including emails, phone numbers and photos will remain private and confidential.
    I perform my Rituals only at night between the hours of 0.00 - 0.59 (South African time) lasting 1 hour but of course, this depends on the nature of the ritual, some rituals might take hours and can also become necessary to be performed at specials places like; flowing streams, cemeteries and other places dictated by the gods.
    I do not want anyone to be under any illusions about my spells and its numerous rituals. Real and effective Voodoo is no child's play, it is expensive because, after the rituals, I will have to destroy all the materials involved by fire and the ashes scattered over a flowing stream or river.
