Cool & Creative Ways to Use Your Muffin Tins!

Advent Calendars

on March 14, 2012

Okay… so this one is REALLY cool!! I spotted it while looking for an interesting photo of a muffin tin to put up today… what a find! I also learned that Advent Calendars aren’t just for counting down to Christmas! After seeing a MUFFIN TIN  Advent Calendar for Valentines Day I looked up  the definition of advent: the arrival of something important or awaited… okay that makes sense, I guess I had only ever thought of Advent in the liturgical sense.  So if you didn’t already know that, today you have learned something new 🙂 Now back to business, so as am following this maze of link after link from site to site I finally settle on one that gives some good DIY instructions for you all to follow if you’d like to give it a try (debbie does creations, see her link below). Its funny how one thing leads to another, while reading Debbie’s blog she mentions Pinterest so then I go there and search “Muffin Tin Advent Calendars” and get a few more pics for you guys! So I posted them all below as well. And here’s another thought, you could put a sweet treat inside the cups as a little added bonus for when the kiddos open the “doors”! You could make these for your own families or give them as gifts. I’m quite impressed with this one!! I already have a really nice (wooden) Christmas Advent Calendar  but with my new found knowledge I am thinking I may make one for Easter or Halloween or both!!

     

Here are all the links have fun with this one!!

Tic Tac Togs is where I found the Valentines Day Advent (though no longer available)

The 1st Christmas Advent Muffin Tin comes to us from fellow blogger the queen says:  I believe she sells them on etsy.

The 2nd Christmas Advent Muffin Tin is from debbie does creations and this is the gal with the DIY instructions!
