"A" is for Advent Updated

After some crafting consulation with the family experts I updated the Christmas Advent Lollipop Tree with the red numbers. (Click here for the original post with a short tutorial on how to make this tree or here to see how we package the trees.)







I simply used a red Decopaint marker and yes now it does look much closer to the inspiration:

Then we added some Airhead lollipops:




And then we did Blowpops:


They're a bit too big for the size of the tree but the kids don't care.

Just found your blog and LOVE all your projects! Especially this one! I always idea shop through catalogues for decor items I can knockoff. I have been searching tirelessly for an advent calender idea, and I love this! Totally am knocking it off. Feel free to come visit me over at my blog. I am doing a whole series right now on Christmas crafts in preperation for a Christmas bazaar I am doing in December.
