Advent at The Craft Barn

Good morning all
I thought I'd post this separately to my WOYWW post. This week we're all Christmassy at The Craft Barn and today, being my turn, I have a slightly quirky (Well I think so) Advent calender to share with you made using a metal wreath, sizzix birds#3 die and more. Tinsel too, after all, it is the Season.
There are lots more details on The Craft Barn Blog HERE and I'd love you to go on over to take a look.

This is the finished piece though.

This is what I used and this weeks special offer;  and over on The Craft Barn Blog are all the details, more photos and how to make it .......

I did admire this on Sunday, didn't realise that it was yours. It is so different then the normal wreaths you see. Great stuff. Love Francesca

I just love this idea Neil!!! But I have to tell you that I really admire your skeleton in the post below, especially considering your Army past. Its just so evocative and linked to that Scripture makes it really special x

Brilliant wreath Neil, just love it. Although I have to be pedantic and call it a "countdown to Christmas wreath" as Advent begins 4 Sundays before Christmas and not on Dec 1st, lol!!!! I do still love the little robins though.
