Advent calendar

Many years ago I created this cute advent calendar for the kids after seeing it in Family Fun Magazine.  First of all I can not throw anything away, so I had a drawer of socks that had lost their mates in my laundry room.  Most of the sock no longer fit the kids, so I thought they were perfect for this project.

I used tiny clothespins to hang them on a length of twine.  In each tiny sock I placed to sweet treats for my kids.

While planning my son’s first birthday, I found another use for the sock garland.  I thought it fit in perfectly with my SOCK monkey theme! I took off all the girly socks and added a few new baby socks.  To tie it all together I added a sock monkey onesie in the middle.  I love seeing all the baby socks, cause kids grow so fast.
