Today is the Christmas edition of Trash to Treasure featuring ## talented bloggers who each took something found a a thrift store, flea market, or maybe even the side of the road, and turned it into something beautiful and useful for the Christmas season. I took a vintage frame and turned it into a frame Advent calendar.

Supplies for Frame Advent Calendar
- vintage gold frame
- jute string
- red, white, and green mini clothespins
- 7Gypsies alphabet stamps (If they’re out of stock, here are some similar alphabet stamps.)
- clear stamping block
- black ink pad
- Canvas Corp Brands Mini Bags, kraft
First, line up the brace stickers on the clear stamping block with enough room between to add the numbers. Then stamp the bottom right corner of the mini bags with numbers 1-25.
Tie the jute string on the top right side of the frame. Zig-zag it from side to side, wrapping it around the sides a couple of times before going to the next side. Cute it and tie to the bottom left side.
Space the mini bags evenly and clip them on with the red, white, and green clothespins.
Print out the 25 Advent Scriptures PDF, cut apart, and stick one in each bag.
Now each day you can pull out the Scripture and read it together as a family.
