My advent calendar consists of 24 little houses made out of paper. They can be easily folded flat for storage. Could be an easy way to create an elaborate Christmas village that is easy to store but looks fantastic and festive.
The nativity story is the heart of Christmas, and the Away in A Manger Ornament captures that story with layers of brightly-colored felt and simple stitches. And with a little help, this these DIY felt ornaments are kid-friendly too.
