As we wind down from the holiday season, and put the decorations away until next year, I’m looking for ways to repurpose some of what I already have, and to fill some of those blank spaces!
This is such a fun way to use an advent calendar, to bring your affirmation cards to life in the new year! I find displaying affirmation cards is such a great way to keep them front and center in your mind!
This DIY could be used as an advent calendar during the holidays or just a pretty way to display your affirmation cards year round. (get my affirmation cards here!)
To make your own:
+ Grab wooden numbers at a craft store, leave them natural or paint them the color of your choice. Do this first so that they have time to dry.
+ Measure and cut string to fit the board you are using. The board I used required 5 pieces of string for the 31 days of January.
+ Glue string to the back of the board (Make sure string is tight, so that when you hang cards, they won’t hang too low.)
+ Cut paper bags, decorative paper, + string in different shapes for each day of the month. Pick your favorite Casey Leigh Affirmation Cards & use laundry clips to hang on strings.
+ Hang lemon garland above the advent calendar to start the New Year with a “fresh start!”
A beautiful way to have meaningful intentions fill your home.
