Magnetic Matchbook Advent Calendar
Crazy creative holiday idea of the day...so I found a bunch of cookie sheets at Walmart for 96 cents, which was much better than Dollar General or Family Dollar. Now, I love my magnetic tray chalk board but I knew there had to be something more.
I bought three 10-packs of matchboxes for 99 cents each. I then spray painted the matchbooks with primer first, then green, red and silver paint. I primed and painted the cookie sheet as well.
I then cleaned out my junk drawers! Rabies tags, random buttons, etc. and glued them onto the matchbooks. Added magnet buttons on the backs and...Voila! A fun advent calendar that you can put little notes, money, or trinkets into for less than ten bucks!
