Jesse Tree ornaments in countdown muslin bags

Today is December 1, so our Jesse Tree begins today!

Last year, I copied an idea from my friend and stenciled numbers on some muslin bags. Inside each bag I placed the coordinating Jesse Tree ornament and used them as our Advent countdown to December 25th.

This year, I strung the bags on some floral wire inside an empty frame (that someone left out next to our trash can one day this summer - score for me!). I stuck it on the mantle for now because none of the other Christmas stuff is out yet.

Oh, the anticipation . . . !
