Advent...."Holy Impatience !!!!!!!"-Tutorial.

5 sleeps and 8 hours until Christmas !!!!

Inspired and overwhelmed by zillion ideas for advent and rolled paper christmas tree, I thought why not combine them..Been wanting to do a christmas craft with Jr, so we both set out to get our hands messy..(ever done a project with a 2.5 year old BOY????-Now that is messy)

The whole idea was get Jr to stick each piece-every day till learn to count till 25 :o).but yeah I was sooo impatient-we jumped to 25th today-Grin.

Here's the tutorial for my Holy impatience.

Materials needed:
scrap paper,glue,scissors,frame-doily/burlap,marker varnish (optional)+ impatient momma and lil one.
I dint have enough scrap paper to make rolls so I simply folded them into a thin strip.(Improvise baby,Improvise)
Layout your papers and decide which order you want them to be in and using the bottom strip as your measure, cut the rest of the strips 
As I said before,if you have a big sheet enough to roll, go ahead.or simply fold them into strips and glue each piece.
Use a brown shade for the stump.I used 3 strips for the stump, coz I wanted to give it some dimension.I had an old picture frame that I covered with doily and burlap, used that as my base for our advent calender..Idea was Jr to stick each piece corresponding to days until Christmas..wanted to start a christmas tradition with crafts..but we I got too impatient and let him stick all of it -after 3 days. He loved doing this..and after each gluing process, he beats the life outta the strips (making sure they stick firmly to the frame)--God save the rolls!!!
I stuck the 'stump' 3D. and let him glue the rest of the strips onto the frame..(I had to guide his hands though)
Wrote 1 on stump and went uptill 24 ,We dint go for the star as topper, simply cut 2 and 5 and stuck 'em on the top.I varnished them -when Jr was napping.But thats optional.
Santa's lil (impatient)helper :o) - He loves sticking...(he's got a thing for tape too!!)
Ca'nt  wait
Holy Impatience!!
Hope y'all are getting impatient about 25th..I did a lil reading about 'Advent' this morning..It means 'Coming', and is a season observed in many Christian churches,a time of expectant waiting and preparation for the celebration of the Nativity of Jesus at Christmas.
                                  Enjoy the Season..remember the Reason....Merry Christmas.
