Advent Calendar - Tree

I always love the cute little advent calendars and I wanted to make one.  I found this wood Christmas tree at Hobby Lobby and picked it up for next to nothing since it was half off.  I thought I might be able to use this as an advent calendar.  The tree had pre-drilled holes in it for lights, but I decided to put little dowel rods in the holes.  Then I purchased some small muslin bags and with heat transfer paper I printed out numbers and ironed them on to the bags.

I filled each bag with a tiny ornament that could be placed on the tree once the bag was opened.  The kids are having a great time opening up the bag each morning to see which ornament is inside.
