I love the surprise and delight of advent calendars and unwrapping a new surprise every day leading up to Christmas. This year, we made advent calendar ornaments to double as decorative pieces for the tree as well as a series of surprises for the holiday. See how…

Here's how:

1. Mix in a tiny bit of water to your acrylic paint.

2. Add one color to each side of the ornament.

3. Close ornament and shake to spread paint around. Open the ornament and let dry for 30 minutes.

4. Fill with goodies, stick on the gold number, and add string to hang on your tree!
