Recycling Clothespins into Advent Calendars

Posted on November 29, 2011 at 10:00 AM

Christmas is just weeks away and I've been trolling the net to see what I can find to post in the way of unusual Advent calendars that are Christmassy but also environmentally friendly. I spotted these two similar ideas using clothespins and plain Jane brown paper wrap.

If you have any clothespins on hand, this Advent calendar would be quick and easy to make. Luckily, because I dry my clothes outside, I have a stash of clothespins I can use. The calendar should be very easy to put together but if you want instructions go to Silje Vaniljeis.  I like the idea that instead of using fancy Christmas gift wrap both use simple brown parcel wrap for each day of the calendar. So simple, economical and eco-friendly! The clothespins can be saved to reuse year after year!
