Do you like to do a Countdown To Christmas with your family? Then these Advent Ornaments are a great activity that you can do with your children while decorating at the same time! Instead of indulging in a chocolate a day advent calendar, these advent ornaments can be used year after year and give you freedom to be creative.
Use these countdown to Christmas advent ornaments to decorate a mini tree that you can find at the craft store. All 24 ornaments should fill it up well, but you can add other ornaments, streamers, garland or other decorations as filler if necessary.
Creativity Make Advent Ornaments That Countdown To Christmas
Our advent ornaments are made with clear glass ball ornaments that countdown to Christmas with all of the memories you or your children have of the holiday season. All they need are numbers and you decide what you would like to fill them with. Great activity for the whole family, and let individuals decide how to fill their advent ornament days. A wonderful opportunity to gather everyone together and use your creativity!
Supplies For Advent Ornaments:
- 24 Clear glass ball ornaments
- Miniature Christmas tree
- Holiday themed embellishments, stickers, miniatures, etc.
- Curling ribbon
- Artificial craft snow
- Numbered stickers
- Ribbon for hanging
Step 1: Using numbered stickers from 1 to 24 (we used holiday ones, alternating between stars and trees), number the outside of the glass balls. Now you are ready to countdown to Christmas!
Step 2: Carefully remove the ornament caps on your advent ornaments and fill them with embellishments, stickers, miniatures, ribbon, anything that reminds you and your family of the holidays.
Note: Make sure when you purchase these items that you find ones that are flexible or fit through the hole of the clear glass ball ornament. Also, avoid items that are heavy because the objects will move around and can break the glass if banging around inside.
