Hey friends!! I am so excited that it's my turn to share how I decorated my Advent Calendar House! I love seeing how everyone is decorating theirs and it's so fun to see different collections and themes being used. You can get so creative with these!! I decided to use the Gingerbread Kisses collection since I have my sweet girl this year and we will be continuing on with all of the fun traditions each day in December. Here's my calendar:

I decided to work on the top of my calendar first, so I measured and cut two pieces of the Pistachio Buffalo Check -Wood Grain paper. Since the front part of the roof is a bit of a unique shape, I measured the bottom (largest straight edge) and cut it into two. Next, I put each piece up against the shape and sort of pushed it against the long diagonal shape of the roof to make an imprint on the paper. Totally not a fancy technique, but it worked just fine! After carefully cutting along that line, I then adhered both pieces down with the wood grain side facing up.

Next, I measured and trimmed out some white cardstock that I planned to adhere to the eaves portion of my roof. I wanted that fun frosting/icing look so I cut into each strip creating a wavy look. Then I added some silver Stickles to the edges for a bit of sparkle. I popped them up on foam tape and adhered it to the edges of my roof. I thought it would be fun to add the train from the Odds & Ends pack and I love how cute it looks!

Next, I got to work on the drawers and cut 2"x2" inch squares using the Swiss Dot Rainbow Petite Prints 6x6 paper pad. I used a 1" inch circle punch to create the notch in the top of each one. After I adhered each one down, I trimmed out the numbers from the Christmas Jammies 12x12 paper and added them to each drawer.

Now it was time for my favorite part... embellishing all of the cute drawers!!! I used the Mini Icons stickers, Puffy Icon stickers and Enamel Dots to embellish. The Mini Icons were the perfect size.

I loved being able to display each sticker/icon and I popped some up on foam tape for a bit of interest. There are so many adorable elements in this collection and this project was definitely perfect to highlight a lot of them.

Here's one last look at this festive advent calendar. I can't wait to fill each drawer up with fun activities to do with my kiddos year after year! I can't wait to see how you decorate yours, please tag me on social media!

Thank you so much for stopping by today, I hope that I've inspired you in some way! See you in my next post friends!
