One of my most favorite things about December is that I can pull out my advent calendars. I LOVE advent calendars and have started a little collection of them, the girls love them as well and race around the house counting down the days until Christmas.
Having very little money I knew I had to get creative and use things that I already have on hand.
For the first day I thought about what a had on hand and knew that I wanted to use some of the jingle bells, nothing sounds like Christmas more then the ringing of a bell from Santa’s sleigh.
So I made each of my girls a jingle bell necklace. It was really simple I simply took a bell put a jump ring around it and put it on a silver chain. Of course ever necklace needs a card to sit on which gave me an opportunity to come up with a poem.
“Do You Hear What I Hear?
From This Christmas Bell
A Sound of Santa Cheer
From the Sleigh it Fell
Wear Around Your Neck
And Give a Little Ring
Keep Yourself in Check
For Presents He Will Bring.”
For those who want to use it for themselves I created an adobe file, each page includes two poems. Just click HERE!
Don’t want to make your own you can purchase it from my etsy shop for $3.00, just click HERE.
And here they sit until the girls get home from school.
