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!

Hi! I'm Linda, the craft addict behind Craftaholics Anonymous®, a craft blog. Crafting is cheaper than therapy, right? When not crafting, I can be found chasing my 2 small {but very energetic!} boys or playing with my new baby girl. Or shoe shopping... because you can never have too many shoes! Happy crafting! ♥

    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 love this! I would need 50 jars so I can make one for each of my daughters with children. Bummer my grand children are past the baby food age now.

    This is such a great idea! What is holding the jars on? magnet or gorilla glue?

    Sooo very cute and clever how do you make sure the jars stay in place and don’t fall off and break

    I saw this on Pinterest and really like the idea. Could you give a step by step tutorial of how you made it (decorating the lids, how to attach them to the tray, etc)?

    Did you ever make a tutorial? I too found you on pintrest and would love to know how you stuck the jars to the tray and such! It’s adorable and I’d love to recreate 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.
