How to Make An Advent Calendar with Plastic Animals
I picked mine up at thrift store, but you can find sets at the craft store. I chose a variety of animals. I love the artic ones for Christmas but Kalia loves dogs, cats, horses etc. So she got them all!
1) Spray paint animals white, some may need two coats ( a spray paint primer paint mix works best for the colorful plastic animals)
2) Once dry, super glue a Pom Pom to each animal “nose” Since the Pom poms are so small, I used a tweezer to place them on- super easy.
|Eyebrow tweezers work just as well as craft tweezers, just watch that superglue on your brows!
If you have great handwriting, unlike myself, freehand each number. Otherwise, use a stencil set and paint each number. (I forgot to take a picture of me stenciling one! I am out of town and cannot reshoot the picture, I am sorry!)
When all the paint is dry and the animals, take super glue again and attach animal feet to top of box and let dry.
Fill each box with candies and little toys!
I am so very excited for Christmas this year!! Last year, we moved from Ohio to AZ during December, so we had no decorations or tree!
