Another Version of The Easiest Advent Calendar... Ever!

I don't know if you remember, but last year I posted an idea for "The Easiest Advent Calendar...Ever!". It was a simple project of stamping the numbers 1-25 on wooden clothes pins.  

Last year, I attached magnets to the backs and stuck them to the refrigerator with fun activities or ideas for each day until Christmas.

This year, I did something a bit easier and lazier!  I pinned a piece of twine to the wall and clipped on cups (recycled from when my girls had their lemonade stand this past summer) and filled the cups with sweet treats for each day.  I think it would have looked even cuter with paper bags, but I didn't have any.

Anyway, I'm sure I'll do something different with the numbered pins next year too.  Hmmm....

How do you count down the days to Christmas?  I can't believe we have only about a week left!
