I finished the Advent Calendar. It’s a Christmas gift so it won’t be used until next year.
This little sheep is just begging to take a peek at Baby Jesus.
I love the little rabbit.
This was a pretty labor intensive project. I had to put together and paint every little piece. The boxes are covered with decorative paper. The calendar isn't as bright as it appears in the pictures. I started using some chipboard for the numbers but they were a mess. They kept peeling after I painted them. I ended up cutting out some numbers using a heavy cardstock (cherry cobbler) and my Silhouette.
I didn’t want this to be to sparkly so I added just a touch of extra fine glitter to the front of the boxes.
I use DecoArt American paint for all of my painting projects. It is my favorite brand to use. I purchase all of my painting supplies from Quality Art in Boise. They have so many items to choose from and fabulous prices.
I added a hint of glorious gold around the stars and the halo for the glowing effect.
The Box measures approximately 18” x 18”
I used to do a bazaar every Christmas and paint dozens of projects to sell. It got to be a job and I didn’t enjoy it any more. I usually only paint 6-8 projects a year. Next year my goal is to paint a few things for myself. I’m making my own little wish list . :)
