The back part of the advent calendar is wrapping paper and the frame is from Ikea 3 years ago! The ornaments are DIY as well (a big project which I really enjoyed working on when the girls were in bed) and if you want something simpler, I shared a much less challenging + budget friendly design last year which can be found over in Instagram, under my story highlights titled, "DIY Advent calendar."

Spooky Craft Closet w/HoneyCanDo

The white and gold bins on the top shelf are from  HoneyCanDo + I'm so happy with the quality of them as they really hold  up with all our paints, paint brushed, spray paint, ribbon and craft supplies inside and the smooth gold + brass handles have made it so much easier to slide the bins in and out of the closet. An upgrade long over due!

You can see more details on this closet over in Instagram under story highlights, "craft closet" and everything else is resourced below.

Making The Wings:
For the girls wings, I placed an entire 9x12 felt piece (regular felt size) on each girls shoulders and measured down to their elbow to cut the piece into a rectangle. Then I folded that rectangle piece in half to make yet again, another smaller rectangle and cut a half circle on one corner, thus making a wing shape!
