Advent Bags

About 5 years ago we started a tradition for our family of advent bags.
We have 24 Advent bags in a basket.
Each morning Master O has to find the right numbered advent bag in the basket.
Inside the advent bags are 24 handmade Christmas decorations.
One to hang on the tree the 24 days leading up to Christmas.
We don't usually get the tree till around 10 December so the decorations circle the basket till then.

The first year I made all the Christmas decorations which was quiet a mission.
The second year I decided any decorations handmade would do by me or others.

Its that time again..................I have been stock piling decorations.
The big kick off is Saturday.

Each day on the blog from the 1st to the 24th I will feature a decoration.
Some new, some from previous advent bags, some by me, some by others.

Here are some pictures from previous years.

Would you like to join us?
Just whip up 24 draw string bags big enough to hold a Christmas decoration and
number them from 1 to 24.
This tradition brings an enormous amount of joy to our family.
