~Dusty Attic Advent Calendar~

I have had this calendar for quite some time and I never did anything with it, because I couldn't decide what matching display to put inside of it. Dusty has so many different ones and they are all really cute. Anyhow, Christmas snuck up on me and it became to late to purchase one for this year, so then it occurred to me that I don't need to have one of the matching sets. So with that, I decided to create my own little display and here. I went with a vintage style and I think it turned out pretty cool.
I decided to cover the bare wood with Ranger Walnut Stain. I dropped a small amount of Walnut Stain straight from the bottle onto a blending tool and covered all the bare wood that was still showing. Although I didn't get it pictured, I used a cream satin ribbon about 1 1/2" wide to go around the outside. I cut the letters for Merry Christmas out on my Cricut using the Storybook cartridge. The cute little vintage images were found off the Internet. There are so many royalty free images these days and vintage ones are extremely plentiful.

Thanks for Stopping By!! God Bless and Merry Christmas!!
