Pinterest Inspiration

Found this on Pinterest and instantly fell in love!

 Pottery Barn - $299!  Are you kidding me!



So decided to make my own!  Eight packages of 3 white pails complete with ribbon from the Dollar Tree, two packages of gold numbers from Hobby Lobby, twine I already had, and sticks from the yard = about $12.00.  I plan to fill the little buckets with scrolls which have an activity or service project on them, and maybe a treat or two.  

 Excuse my dirty window.  This is the only place I had to put it where little hands couldn't get to it!  ;-)  Next year, I'll try to find straighter sticks.

What?  I know it's December 3rd already!  I'll have it done by the end of the day.  And we've already done the things for the past two days!

I love your take on the PB advent calendar - at a mere fraction of the outrageous price PB wants for theirs! Awesome job!
