It’s time now, to dress our crocheted Christmas Tree and turn it into an ‘Advent Tree’!
Gather some Christmas wrap and I’ve collected an assortment of different sized matchboxes.
Cover the matchboxes simply by wrapping each matchbox with a scrap of Christmas wrap, secure the wrap with a piece of sticky tape at the back of the matchbox.
Next we have to print out some numbers 1 – 24. Chose a snazzy font, and make sure to leave some space around your numbers so that each number can be cut out.
I’ve cut circles, you could cut stars, you could also use fancy scissors to cut out your numbers, creating a decorative edge.
Alternate your numbers on opposite sides of the branches, as shown in the photo below. My youngest child wished to ‘help’ dress the tree, so I’m waiting for him to get home from school today, but I’m sure you get the general idea.
Fill the ‘gift boxes’ with a sweet treat, and place them in each branch. Ta Da! That concludes this month’s mystery crochet project, I hope you’ve enjoyed it!
