Tea Advent Calendar

This is a quickie, inexpensive, last minute gift that you can whip up with a quick trip to the dollar store and grocery store.  You could use dollar store tea too, if your dollar store has stocked shelves......ours didn't!.
 I spied these "wreath shaped plates" and a pre-made advent calendar clothespin "doodad" thingys at the dollar store.


I dismantled the advent clothespin "doodad" thingy and started glueing them on the plate.



"Wow" I said to myself.  How cool that they fit, leaving the perfect opening at the top for a bow.  Then I lifted the plate up and saw #4.............
Damn # 4 hiding under my mess.  
Did a bit of shuffling, and repositioning of the bow.




 Added the tea to the clothespin advent   "doodads"






Project cost was under $10.00

Just a quick gift for a neighbor or teacher!  This is going to my sister in-law!  Shes loves to get her drink on!

Cheers!

  1. That's brilliant, I don't really drink coffe, tea on the other hand is like crack, and the rest of my family are the same. Great gift
