I know, I know. I just realized Dec. 1 is only a day away (can't get those Annie lyrics out of my head!!). So here are a couple of other neat Advent calendar ideas this time repurposing coat hangers and oh, yeah, branches.
This one is from Mari Eriksson over at Angel at my Table. She used an old wooden coat hanger using what appear to be small cup hooks to hold the Advent parcels. A bit finicky if you're like me and insist on immediate results but, hey, the kids will love this one.
This next one is from the folks at by Fryd Design and they used a wire coat hanger to tie on their cute little Advent bundles. Just wrap the coat hanger in some old tree tinsel and tie on.
So - you say you don't have a wooden or wire coat hanger to use? Well, a neat little tree branch is just the ticket. If you don't have trees of your own, ask a neighbour if you can cut one from their tree. They shouldn't mind, especially when you show them how you repurposed that branch. Cute little banners decorate the plain Jane parcels. This one comes from the blog englemor-hilde (unfortunately, this project has been removed from this site).
Not sure why, but I seem to be visiting a lot of Scandaniavian sites. They sure know how to celebrate Christmas!!
