FAVORITE CHRISTMAS CRAFT OF ALL TIME

SONY DSC

I have done lots and lots of crafts over the years, but this Christmas count-down calendar (cookie sheet pan painted black) has been by far my favorite for lots of reasons. 
I made it with a group of friends.
I used this and that.
It took on-the-spot creativity.
It is a visual delight.

You may wonder why I am posting this now instead of at the beginning of the season.  Because now is when you need to gather the supplies to make one for yourself next year.  Get an empty gift bag or box and start loading it up with the following:
  
gift tags
Christmas cards
stickers
broken ornaments
miniature bows
bells
scraps of ribbon
glitter
after-Christmas markdowns
numbers
you know--this and that
oh, and magnet tape
  And don't forget the glitter--because glitter makes everything better.
All you will need to complete your project when you are ready will be glue and some Christmas music playing in the background.
