This is a quick little project. A 12 days of Christmas countdown garland. Each little shape has some candy inside to open and enjoy as you count down to Christmas.
First I started with some patterned paper from my Winter Woodland collection.
Then I cut out some simple shapes, and stapled them together at the edges.
I filled them with candy. Only a few pieces fit into these ones but you could make larger shapes to hold more if you wanted.
I created number labels and punched then out using my 2″ punch.
Then I tied the shapes to some twine. My kids love counting down to Christmas this way, and you could even do 25 days of Christmas.
Hope you enjoy this simple little idea.
