Easy DIY: Holiday Calendar
- Repurpose an old picture frame to hang the project. Apply silver-leaf to amp up the glitz factor.
- Cut mat board to fit frame, then measure out 24 spots on which to place your calendar containers. Try small aluminum screw-top spice tins for an inexpensive and reusable container option.
- Affix tins using Velcro dots for easy reattachment, then print out images of vintage fabrics and cut them to fit in the clear lids.
- Fill each tin with candies or seasonal messages and for the 24th, make an extra-special addition: we used a Tiffany & Co. box to reinforce the jewel-box theme.
