Our Advent Tree

A certain handsome, otherwise sensible male adult in our household who shall remain nameless, has used the above pictured hideous substance since he was a hormonal teenager.   My duty-driven 10 year old daughter, the official light helper, tree trimmer and recycle queen thought there had to be a way to reuse the plastic containers.

Behold….

Our Advent Tree

A Bible verse is affixed inside each lid and a small treat tucked in each day.  We cut out circles and mod-podged them to each lid.  (After soaking out the wintergreen scent and pulling off the labels).  A hole was drilled in the bottom of each plastic bottom and we screwed them onto a piece of thin plywood.  We can reuse this year to year.
