a pegboard advent is my fave

November 19, 2012

YAMF Holiday Handmade is sponsored by Kollabora, the community for makers.

I have two more advents to share with you this week. Hip, hip!

To make your own pegboard advent you’ll need:
– 25 glassine bags (I like the selection from ClearBags)
– treats
– date stamp
– sewing machine
– clothes pins
– decorative tape
– floral wire
– pegboard

Step One: Stamp your bags with the appropriate dates, fill with treats and stitch closed.
Step Two: Cover the front of the clothespins with tape. Trim wire and string through the hole of each clothespin. Attach to pegboard by putting each end of wire through holes and twisting together on the backside.
Step Three: Attach bags to clothespins.
Step Four: Make more bags to replace the ones that get stolen throughout the day.
