Pallet Advent Calendar

Don't forget to stop by and Like my Facebook Page and Follow me on Twitter!
CHRISTMAS is coming! And once again I was lucky enough to pair up with Oriental Trading for some great products to create my Pallet Advent Calendar. I couldn't be more happy with what I received. Check out their website for more Christmas products and ideas!
I ordered the following from Oriental Trading to start this project:
Black Metal Lanterns {remember them from the Fall Tablescape?}
Clear String Lights
Poinsettia Garland
Kraft Paper Price Tags
Christmas Glitter Takeout Boxes
Pinecone Votive Holder
Silver Glitter Bows
 Once I had all my products ready I grabbed an old pallet and cut out the boards. I attached the slats on the back with a couple of scrap pieces of wood.
 The backside of the calendar was ready to go!
Next I started adding shelves to the back.
 All done!
 I attached D-rings to the back for hanging.
 I printed numbers on clear labels and applied them to the gift tags. Then I hot glued the tags to the gift boxes.
 I used some leftover rope to hang the pallet and attached the bow. I added the lanterns and pinecone votive to the display and was just about done!
 I thread the clear lights around the shelves and along the bottom of the display with the poinsettia garland.
 The hubby and I are splitting the days. I'm filling gifts for him on even days and he's taking the odd days. I don't have all of them full yet but some ideas include: handmade coupons, lotto tickets, cash, cookies or chocolate.
