With Christmas just around the corner (42 days to be precise – eeeek!!) we have a wonderful craft activity that is sure to brighten up your home.
Our Christmas Tree Advent Calendar made from natural wood, features 24 small pull out drawers that are ideal for filling with sweet treats and presents.
A fantastic gift or feature in your home, follow our quick and simple steps to create your own personalised calendar that can be used year after year.
Start by painting your wooden tree with whatever colour and design you like. We’ve gone for a base coat colour using cadmium red acrylic paint but you don’t have to stick to red, use greens, purples and pinks to customise for your taste.
Add your countdown to Christmas numbers, by applying numbered stickers to each pull out drawer. We have used our multi-coloured EVA foam numbers, which simply stick to your chosen material, without the need for glue.
Finish off your advent calendar by adding festive embellishments such as 3D stickers and pom-poms, you can even apply sequins, buttons and ribbon to add the perfect finishing touch. We have used our Owl and Santa’s Workshop embellishments which you can find online.
This fab craft activity is perfect for kids and adults this Christmas. We would love to see your own calendar creations, so remember to send in some of your pictures.
