Advent Garland/Chain

There are lots of ways to celebrate Advent or countdown to Christmas and last year was the first year that we did. It was too late to make a Advent tree from matchboxes which I love and we were having some friends over so I decided to do a chain/garland with a mish-mosh of ideas for a family to do. I included scriptures, activities, jokes and Christmas quotes and I hand wrote all the chain pieces and gave the finished garlands away as parting gifts. This year I made a few more and instead of hand writing them I typed it out (big time saver!) and took pictures! It's also a great way to use leftover Christmas scrapbook paper..or a good reason to buy more! :)
