Some of the inspiration came from this adorable idea in PaperCraft magazine:
A Bottle Cap Advent Calendar:
I love this simple, frugal idea of using bottle caps, scrapbook paper and even photos to count the days of December.
But I wanted to add a little message inside each cap. You can download my plan for Advent here.
First, I had my kids help me glue magnets onto the backs of bottle caps. These are pretty cheap at Hobby Lobby, but you can also use recycled caps.
Next, I gathered paper and stickers.
I cut out 25 little squares.
And numbered them.
I took the secret message and tucked it into the cap and taped the number over the top:
I put them on the fridge in the form of a Christmas tree and my kid’s are very eager for December first to get here!
