Make Advent Calendar Blocks

#DIY #ChristmasDecor Advent Calendar @savedbyloves


This is the first year I have made an advent calendar, and I am loving it!  It was so fun to create.  I busted out my stamps and other scrapbooking supplies and went to town on some wooden blocks.  What is so cool about it is as you turn each block around when that date passes, a wintery scene is revealed on the other side!

To make your very own advent block calendar, you will need:

25 square wooden blocks (I used 1 inch cubes, but size doesn’t matter as long as they are all the same)


Christmas scrapbook paper

Acrylic paint in silver, red and green

Matte Gel Medium

Glossy accents or Dimensional Magic

Craft knife

Distress ink pad in Antique Linen

Ranger crackle paint Clear Rock Candy

Ranger crackle paint White Picket Fence

Number stamps

Stazon Jet Black Ink Pad

To finish, I painted the sides of the blocks green, and coated the wintery scene paper side with clear crackle paint to seal.
