Our advent village
I wanted to make a really special advent for Ronan this year, one that would last for years to come. I found these cool paper-mache house-shaped boxes at Michael's one afternoon and immediately pictured a sweet little winter village scene. Using gold spray paint, white craft paint, blue painter's tape, and stick on letters I was able to create this little scene on our mantle. It was a lot of fun to do and I'm very pleased with the results. Now I just need to find 24 tiny treats to tuck inside! Ronan is thrilled with them and said, "WOW Mom! Look at all the little houses!" He has no idea yet that starting on the first he will get to open one every day and find a present. I can't wait to see his face!
