DIY Valentines Advent Calendar and Chalkboard Backdrops

I've just finished up all the Valentines decorating around here and have this last quick tutorial to share with you today.
 
I had big plans to do a Christmas advent calendar this past year because they always look so fun, but with all the hustle and bustle, totally forgot about it. So as an alternative, I decided to do a DIY brown bag, glittered doily topped Valentines advent calendar instead! Whew! ... now THAT'S a mouth-full.
 
View the slideshow and learn how to make a countdown calendar for Valentines Day.
 
Everything's pretty self explanatory but as a quick rundown, here's what you'll need:
* Brown gift/favor bags
* Fine glitter
* Small doilies
* Quick-dry glue (with a fine applicator tip)
* Candy/Valentines goodies
* Twine
* Small clothespins
* Vinyl numbers
