I love creating home decor items for the holidays and last year I created a fun, reusable muffin tin advent calendar. My kids helped me hang it again this December and are excited every morning to see what is hiding under today's number!
This is our advent calendar that I made in 2011.
I had some customers request these this year so we recreated another version of mine this year using Early Espresso, Pool Party Cherry Cobbler, Whisper White, and Gumball Green. We punched magnet sheets and carstock to make the covers for the mini muffin tins. Then we embellished each day with punches, stamps, die cuts, ribbon and rhinestones. Each scallop circle covers a hole for days 1-24 in December. Now it just needs the ribbon hanger and it is ready to go!
I have fun hiding candy, mini erasers, Silly Bandz, coins, notes, "tickets" for activities and other little toys under each day. I really love that it is reusable too! My kids definitely enjoy this advent calendar tradition!
Quick Tip: If you are creating one, make sure your muffin tin is magnetic before you purchase it!
