25 Days of Christmas Advent Calendar

Baby Food Advent Calendar

baby food jar advent calendar I finished my advent calendar! wahoo! Barely in the nick of time since today is December 1st. Better late then never, right? I used baby food jars to hold the candy or prize for each day.
(I actually make my own baby food, so I had to scrounge up these jars!:)
And I got the black serving tray at Goodwill for a $1. Can’t beat that!
Well, I know there’s one really excited kid person around here to open the jar each day!

    This is great!! I wouldn't have thought of baby food jars! (and props to making your own food….I just started that myself and wow it's so much cheaper!)

    So I have an advent half done just like this accept I used the little match boxes covered with paper instead of jars to hold the treat!

    It's not the advent I am using this year but hopefully I'll get it done soon and can post it!

    As always great crafting Linda!

    Great idea, and I LOVE the colors and patterns … wondering if it's really heavy with some many jars on it?

      I’m not sure what she used, but E-6000, Industrial Strength Glue would do the trick. It dries clear, neat and tidy. :)

    I like how you upcycled baby food jars for this, it came out so pretty.
