Welcome To The 101st Masterpiece Monday!

Happy first day of December!
In honor of that, I decided to make an advent calendar.This is my first advent calendar, ever, I'm not sure why. Anywhoo, I decided to
go with a nautical theme.

  Except for the time consuming tracing and cutting, this was very easy to make and of course, pretty inexpensive too.



 I've been saving this corrugated piece of cardboard forever and decided that it would make some cute tags and coordinate with the burlap. I traced the seahorses out of scrap paper I already had and added a glitter eye.
 I used stickers for the numbers and used silver pipe cleaners to hang them on tinsel garland.  The Christmas ornaments are from the 99 cent store.
