The holidays are in full swing! As a mom, I wanted to make sure my girls had a way to enjoy a festive treat that is made with real fruit and fun to eat.
Welch’s® Fruit Snacks challenged me to get crafting with my kids this holiday season by creating and decorating a DIY advent calendar made of mini stockings. The great thing about this Super Easy DIY Craft is that you can start the countdown whenever you make it and have a lot of fun.
With these materials, we decided to go with a silver and gold theme and create holiday berries and leaves with the pom-poms.
Step 1 – Number your stockings with gold numbers. If you do not have enough numbers in your pack, get creative and figure out what letters can be turned into numbers. For example, take a piece of the H off and you have a 4. Use the letter l for the number one!
Step 2 – Glue two green and one red pom-pom to the bottom of the stocking to create a small holiday flower.
Step 3 – Use some decorations such as stickers to decorate the string that the stockings will hang some to create a festive flare!
Step 4 – Use Command Strips to hang your silver ribbon and stockings to the wall to create a super easy DIY Advent Calendar. Add adhesive gingerbread stickers to cover the edges of the string.
We hung ours in the kitchen so that our family could enjoy Welch’s® Christmas Fruit Snacks as an “on-the-go” treat!
Welch’s® Christmas Fruit Snacks are available in a 5-count box, perfect for stocking stuffers, as well as a 28 count box, perfect for classroom holiday parties. I love that fruit is the first ingredient and that they are made with real fruit. They are also gluten-free,fat-free and contain no preservatives..
The Welch’s® Fruit Snacks Christmas-themed box and pouch have custom graphics with fun shapes including a snowman, ornament, Santa, snowflake, and Christmas tree.
