DIY Advent Tree – A Beautiful Mess

Building an advent calendar

To build the tree, I sourced scrap wood from old pallets and cut them from large to small—you can cut the wood any size you’d like. I then sanded wood and covered it with a matte sealer. The beauty of this project is that you can make the tree as straight and clean or as wonky as rough as you’d like.  After the tree was built, I wrapped up small prizes and treats and made activity cards to hang from push pins.
