Alice shared a simple way to make paper cubes, and it reminded me of how we made our own wooden Advent Cubes. I didn’t want to order them online because the shipping would cost more than the cubes themselves. I hardly ever make it out to go shopping. My husband does all of the errand running and shopping on his way to and fro work. One day he called to tell me he was stopping by the home improvement store on his way home to pick up new downspouts. I knew I had to get stared on these cubes so I sweetly said, “Honey, could you please stop by Hobby Lobby and pick up a package of 24 three quarter inch wood cubes?”. Being the logical creature that he so dearly is, he replied, “Why would I do that when I can just pick up a dowel rod and cut them for you myself?” Of course! What was I thinking?? And that is exactly what he did!
Yes, that is a circular saw, never too early to teach the boys to use power tools! Can you see the two little girl faces peeking out of the window in the second picture?
Viola! Advent Cubes ready to be decorated!
This may explain a why our neighbors think we’re odd! 🙂
