How to Make an Easy Handmade Advent Calendar

Posted December 3, 2014 by Bethanie Lunn

I love this time of year especially as I’m a Mum now.  Children just make Christmas what it is don’t they?

I often like to get crafty and make my own Christmas decorations.  I’m not great at sewing so I keep it simple and with a love of paper, I used my creativity to make this advent calendar for my son.

With a different picture for each day of December including Christmas Day itself, I designed all of it on the collage app, Pic Collage then simply printed and cut to size.

Each date is clipped to a burgundy ribbon with Santa pegs and behind those, little sweet treats.  Some days have treats, others have little messages on such as ‘Do something kind today‘ and ‘Smile and the world smiles with you’.  For us as a family, it’s as much of a daily festive treat as it is a garland of positive affirmations.

Why not try creating your own?  There’s still time and you’ll have three days of treats to catch up on to bring it up to date.

I’d love to hear your handmade, Christmas craft ideas too so please leave a comment.
