Remember how I told you I was working on this surprise for my little family? Well on the feast of St. Nicholas I gave it to my husband to start our tradition with our kids. Each day is numbered from December 1st- 24th, counting down the days until Christmas. Each pouch will be filled with sweets, ornaments, and other surprises, along with a daily verse to help us remember we are celebrating the coming of the newborn King!
These are so easy to make!
-Burlap fabric (about 1/2 yard)
- Cloth Bags (I bought mine from Hooray)
-dowel rod or curtain rod
- rope string or cord
-Decorations (trim, mini ornaments, etc.)
-Hand stitch the bags in rows along the burlap fabric (or just hot glue).
-Print or stamp numbers on scalloped punches
- Hole punch the tags and tie along the strings
-Add any extra decor items to personalize
- Fill with goodies and sweet messages
-Tie rope/cord along both sides of your rod and hang!
I hope this inspires you to try some of your own Christmas traditions you have been wanting to do. It made me so happy to see my little boy reach in the pocket to pull out his train ornament the first day:) Simple efforts can be returned with such simple joys!
