DIY Advent Calendar (For Dogs?!)


Soooo festivities are beginning! The Christmas Markets are all set-up, the town lights are switched on, the home decorations have been fished out of their dark dusty corner, and Advent Calendars are being opened! - Admittedly this post is much much too late buuut I'm going to share it anyway, because I can ;)

Me and Grant usually surprise each other with an advent calendar, although after five years, I guess it's no surprise anymore, but I also like to include the dogs with their own advent calendar too. Doggy advents cost around £5 each(!) Whopper, and it's Doug's first Christmas this year, so I would need to buy two. To save my pennies on overpriced dog treats, I've decided to make my own at a fraction of the price, with lots of bits from around the house.



I've used a combination of small money envelopes and brown parcel paper to wrap up some tasty doggy treats. I also decorated these with glitter paper, glitter glue, twine and ribbon, feeeling festive! I attached some rope to the wall with nails and pegged these on with some old fashioned dolly pegs. I originally intended to paint the pegs, but my 1st December deadline came around too soon.





Since I had so much rope left, I made a little rope sign, which turned out much better than I imagined!


I think the dogs are enjoying their homemade advent calender. I've caught Todd sniffing around it lots, he definitely knows it's his ;)


Happy Advent!
