Silver Shimmery Ornament Advent Calendar!

 Silver Shimmery Ornament Advent Calendar!
 A 12 Day Christmas Countdown made with a gorgeous collage frame
4 by 4" Twitterpated from Shaped Expressions!  Price is $40.
Shaped Expressions sent it to me in exchange for this review.
They even included a thank you card!
 I decided to go with a frosty, frozen, shimmery,
icy, silver bells, white Christmas, blue and aqua's scheme.
(my favorite Christmas decor is silver and blue)
I removed the back boards and laid the frame out on some boxes...
 And spray painted it shimmering silver!
 While the frame was drying,
I took the back board, some cork and some linen...
 I cut the cork to be just about a quarter inch smaller than the back board.
Then I hot glued it right on top!
 Covered it with a square of linen and hot glued that on top as well.
 After the frame dried, I placed the backing back in
the frame and secured them with the tabs.
 Then it just took some sifting through trinkets and ornaments
and finding the perfect ones that match the frosty theme!
I spray painted the carousel horse silver too!
 It's going to look great on the wall all through December...
then starting on December 13th, the kids will
 get to add an ornament to the tree each day!
 I've seen cork board ornament advents before...
But I love mine in this frame!
I totally kicks it up a notch...plus...I can use it
 year round for lots of other things--like an Instagram photo board...
memo's...love notes...scriptures to memorize!
I love it!
Do you do advent calendars or Christmas countdowns?
I must admit...some days we forget and end up playing catch up!
