Making a Fiber Arts Advent Calender

2017/18 advent calender

Advent, also known as Count-down to Christmas, is only two months away and I am back working on my newest advent calender. It is all fiber arts, very big (30"x40"), and a work in progress! As you see it in the image above, it was at the point of being usable last holiday season (2017 season). But by no means completed.

Temari Holiday Trees

Happy Holiday Making everyone! A very special post for you today, a project that Diane (Craftypod) and I began several years ago.

Punched Tin Holiday Tree

Despite glaring imperfections, I am happy to have this punched tin tree finally joining all the others in my tree collection.

It was Muse's idea to use one of my punched tin light shields as the topper. I thought she was crazy, but ... it works! One must always trust Muses. They know stuff.

This is not really a proper tutorial, but more of a guide for anyone wanting to create a similar tree.
