DIY Paper Diamond Advent Garland

DIY Paper Diamond Advent Garland

One of my favorite parts of the Christmas season is celebrating Advent with our family. Each Sunday a candle is lit in church and we do the same at home. Of course, we love Advent calendars too with their little treats to tempt first thing in the morning!

I like to try a new advent calendar each year and this year I decided I was going to plan ahead and do a special handmade calendar.
