I know, I know this might be a bit too late to make, but I really love how it decorated our house all Christmassy! I also like 1 candy a day diet very much, at least for now it's not harming anyone. I got this idea from here (even if it looks completely different, my lightbulb lighted up as soon as I saw that raindrop decoration). So, to make your own star advent calendar cut out star pieces out of felt material.1. Embroider the number of the day on one felt star piece. I found chain stitch is the best for that!
2. Join two felt star pieces together by using buttonhole stitch.
3. Once you finished stitching two star pieces together make sure not to cut the string. It will be useful late on!
4. In the back cut the star open so the candy could be inserted. You can finish the edge off with buttonhole stitch as well. Once all 24 stars are made then get a wire hanger and wrap it with pine branches (or fir or spruce or even cypress and cedar). I used a string to keep the branches tight on the wire. Last thing to do is to tie all the stars onto the hanger ;-). Enjoy!Happy Christmas waiting!
