Pottery Barn Knock Off Advent Calendar

Loved the look but not the price of this advent calendar from Pottery Barn. So I made my own version
No wonder this was a sell-out with it's barn board frame, cute galvanized buckets to hold treats and rustic charm.
The frame is from my stash, but it didn't come with a backing board. A foam core board from the dollar store was wrapped in burlap.
Getting galvanized buckets at this time of year proved to the be challenge. So I got white wedding favour buckets from the dollar store, painted them silver and then used antiquing wax to get a rustic look.I created the labels on the computer and printed them off on sticker paper.
Filled with treats for the family, this advent calendar is one of my favourite projects. You can get the label printable on my blog.
