Advent Tree Kit Giveaway!!!

Advent Tree Kit Giveaway!!!

EDIT: The Giveaway is Closed. Thanks to everyone that entered!

My Busha use to say, “If you haven’t gotten half your day’s work done by 10:30 a.m., you’ll never get it all done.” Well, it’s 10:30 folks, in a metaphorical Christmasy kind of way. So, we are doing an early Christmas Giveaway BECAUSE, you simply can’t wait to the day before Christmas to make an Advent Calendar!

Our Advent Tree is yet another variation of our basic Christmas Tree Applique Block. The pattern has been enlarged 325%… sounds crazy, right? Why 325%? I guess that is some industry standard, but there will be more discussion about that in our directions. For the time being suffice to say, the finished Advent Tree is 24″ x 28″. There are painted wood buttons that meander up the tree. A wool felt star moves its way up the buttons on the tree to count-down the days to Christmas.

NOW… about the Giveaway. We are beyond excited that we are partnering with the awesome folks over at PRAIRIE POINT JUNCTION on the Giveaway. They have graciously provided 2 kits for us to Giveaway. Totally, generous, right? We certainly think so! AND, Julie, at Prairie Point Junction, has put together kits to make additional Advent Trees and a has a lovely little surprise. But more on that in a minute.

There are several ways to enter this Giveaway:
1] Post a comment here (be sure to fill in your name… nicknames are fine).
2] Link to us through your blog, FaceBook, Twitter, Flickr, etc. Post additional comments (one for each link). Make sure to include linking info.
3] Then, head over to Prairie Point Junction, visit their blog, and leave a big, juicy THANK YOU to Julie and her crew, then run back here and tell us you did, and yep, another chance to win!

The contest will run from today, Wednesday, November 4 through Tuesday, November 10, at 9:00 p.m. EST when 2 lucky winners will be chosen at random. After the winners are announced, the directions for the Advent Tree will be available online.

Additionally… if it is possible you haven’t been to Prairie Point Junction yet, it’s high time you did! Since I discovered them over a year ago, they have been my primary supplier of felt and other supplies. Here’s a little bit more about them PLUS yet another kind offer.

Julie at Prairie Point Junction, home of , has put together a kit with the supplies you’ll need to make your own Advent Tree.

  21. How have I never been to Wool Felt Central?! Thanks for introducing us.
    My parents still have my childhood felt tree Advent calendar that they put together as a kit some time in the early ’80s (acrylic felt with plastic sticker-ed “ornaments”) I’d love to have this finer version for my own home… which is not to say I don’t love to put on those little velcro ornaments when I’m visiting the folks before the holidays!
