DIY Advent Calendar

Christmas is right around the corner, are you ready for the count down?

I love the tradition of the Advent calendar but is the first time i made one. In Italy the advent calendar is not the main tradition,  we usually start decorating our houses on the day of the Immaculate Conception, December 8. Along with the fancy lights, wreaths and trees, presepe (or nativity scenes) are displayed in many churches, piazzas and also private houses.

The idea for my DIY Advent Calendar came since i wanted to make a¬†presepe too this year . In “nativity scenes” italians usually demonstrate their artistic impulse, and so do I!

Here is my idea of a DIY advent calendar that will absolutely inspire you to make your own. Materials you need:

  • n. 25 brown cardboard boxes
  • one white cardboard sheet
  • n. 25 small plastic animals (preferably in white)
  • little pom poms
  • glue/scissors…and fantasy

Free Carnival postcard & mask – Free postcard n.2

I’m happy to share with you ¬†a diy “Carnival postcard”: a paper postcard that can be used as a mask too.¬†

The key words of this blog post are: Carnival + DIY + postcard + art therapy, such a great mix of ideas!

(ps. This is the second FREE POSTCARD¬†i made, if you missed the first one…have a look to¬†this page.)

The Carnival-postcard-mask was a present for my super¬†friend Irene.¬†The drawing for the postcard was inspired by her and the gorgeous city where she lives: Barcelona. Irene is an enthusiastic architect, i think she’ll enjoy the idea that she can color herself the postcard-mask.

Download for free the Carnival Mask i made for my friend Irene – here – .

The idea, the project and the drawing is a “Do it Juicy” original idea, inspired by “art therapy”.

I’m a proud supporter of the power of colors and pencils, drawing help my to be¬†concentrated and has a¬†therapeutic power.

(WIKI¬†… ¬†Adult coloring books¬†help with developing fine motor skills and vision, reducing anxiety and creating focus, and relieving stress and anxiety in a manner similar to¬†meditation.[19]¬†Concentrating on coloring may facilitate the replacement of negative thoughts and images with pleasant ones….)¬†

The “Carnival-postcard-mask” has a double use:

  • you can choose to write-colour-and send it to a fried
  • or you can just made your own carnival mask…HOW?

Just follow the following instructions, but first download here the FREE TEMPLATE:
