Create a festive Christmas tree countdown calendar using products from Graphic 45, Petaloo, and Xyron. Great home decor craft project!
You know how I love all things vintage and shabby chic, so I was thrilled to have the opportunity to join a blog hop with Graphic 45 and Petaloo! Graphic 45 always has drool worthy retro imagery in their products, and Petaloo creates vividly colored flowers that are perfect for lots of crafting. They’ve teamed up with Xyron to share some amazing Christmas crafts from various designers, and giving YOU the chance to win some great prizes. Click HERE to learn how to enter.
I combined beautiful holiday papers from Graphic 45 with lovely Petaloo foliage to create a present filled Christmas tree countdown calendar. By using my Xyron Creative Station instead of liquid adhesive I was able to complete this entire project in one afternoon, and didn’t have to deal with smelly glues or long drying times!
My plan is to add present number 1 on December 1st, and then continue each day until the tree is full. If you prefer, you could fill the tree on the first and remove one present each day. Either way will work!

- Christmas Tree with Shelves
