I made this calendar for my 3 year old Granddaughter Arrow. No prizes, candies or gifts...just numbers to learn and decorate the tree with. Hopefully she will learn about buttons too since all the ornaments attach with ribbon loops to buttons. The tree is felt with embroidery using very simple stitches. The ornaments are made with paper clay and then felt is glued to the back with the ribbon loop sandwiched in between. Number 24 has Santa on the back for Christmas Eve. Painted with gloss medium, the paper clay ornaments are pretty sturdy. Hopefully, they will survive years of being dropped on the floor. Maybe even generations ; )
Happy Holidays to all!
