Christmas Advent Calendar Wall Chart (full tutorial with free printables!)
You will need:
1 Fabric. I used lined (backed) seeded calico (from Spotlight). Of course you could use almost anything. I chose the calico because it had a lovely organic look and a nice medium weight (due to the backing). Plus, at only $5 a meter (on sale) it was also super affordable.
2 Hemming tape. Obviously, this is to hem the fabric. You could choose to sew the hems, use fabric grade double sided tape or fabric glue.
3 Timber trim. I used 18mm (3/4″) half dowel.
4 Timber stain. I used water-based interior stain in Walnut.
5 Double sided tape.
6 Thumb tacks or upholstery pins.
7 Hanging string. I used twine.
8 Paper. I used good quality photo paper though you could simply use standard copier paper. Light cardstock would also be good.
9 Shipping tags. I used 108mm x 54mm (4 1/4″ x 2 1/8″) tags (from Officeworks). I wanted the simplicity of traditional buff though you can find them in lots of pretty colours. Red would be nice.
10 Bakers twine. I used traditional red and white (from eBay) though you can buy it in lots of colours.
11 Acetone. For transferring the chart title onto the fabric. There are quite a few different mediums you can use for fabric transfers (Citrasolv and Artist Gel Medium being two popular ones). I found the acetone worked really well for me.
