Yesterday was Advent 1st. Wille and I went to an Advent market in the afternoon and I listened to Holiday Music while typing away on the lap top. Traditionally Advent calendar (duh!) candle holders look like this and in the past my own has looked like this but I’m skipping red this year. I still wanted the little shrooms though.
So I dipped them. I used somewhat diluted white craft paint and dipped them three times leaving them to dry in between. I made a little impromptu drying rack from a glass container and two chop sticks and it worked really well.
I love how the tops became a little pointy from the dripping paint. Then I got my green marker out again and drew little spots.
And here they are my little toxic buddies.
