DIY Gifts (56) – Advent Calendar

How about preparing, perhaps together with your children, this very original Advent Calendar.

If you have patience, you can create the boxes yourself, otherwise to speed up this project you can buy them ready-made and decorate them as you like!

Gift No. 56



colored cardboard (or ready-made boxes) – glitter – decorative ribbons – hot glue – twine – branch or wooden stick

Let’s start by creating our boxes (below you will find the template to print). Just open it and print it in the size you prefer.

The solid lines indicate the parts to be cut, while the dotted ones indicate the parts to be folded (to make the cardboard fold without difficulty, I recommend you engrave with a cutter).

Your boxes ready!

If you don’t have the patience to create 24, you can also buy them ready-made.

Once you have created your boxes, you can fill and decorate them as you like (below the template to cut the numbers to apply).

Insert a gift in each box and close with the glue.

Attach the number plates. Cut lots of pieces of string of different lengths.

Glue the string and connect it to the previous box.

I made four rows of six, but you can do more or less.

The choice is yours whether to attach them spaced or close together.

Let your imagination drive you!
