Here is an idea to suit all pressed for time parents ! or if you read this article with only a few days to go before Advent starts 😊 : A homemade Advent calendar that can be made quickly and with little supplies !
More than ever you will find in crafts shops, small boxes or packagings in all shapes and forms, these are ideal. You can, of course, recycle small boxes, bags that you may have at home.

You will need 24 small boxes (we recommend plain kraft ones). Cover some of the lids with some fancy tissue paper if you wish. Then, add one each of the lids one of the countdown stickers.
After filling them with little gifts or treats, just display them in a pretty basket or dish.

toilet roll tubes Advent calendar with black and silver stickers


To make this Advent calendar, you will need :
– 24 cardboard toilet roll tubes
– a craft knife
– a drinking glass
– a branch
– colourful masking tape(s)
– some twine
– a length of ribbon
– some foliage

First, flatten the tubes by pressing gently.
Next, use the glass to draw a curve at both ends of the tube and gently score with the craft knife. Be careful not to cut all the way through the cardboard.
Now, press in on the long sides of the roll so the tubes look only slightly squashed
Push in the curved ends of the tubes to seal the ends so you end up with pillow boxes.
Decorate your boxes with the masking tape
Add the final touch by sticking a countdown sticker on each of the boxes.
Use the twine to hang them from the branch that you would have decorated beforehand with some masking tape and the foliage.
