1. First, wrap the string lights around the embroidery frame (or metal circle) to give the calendar a boho touch. After that, use the metal wire to attach the green branches to the wreath to form a crescent moon, ready to be decorated with everything you’d expect from an Advent calendar!
2. The next step is to make the boxes. For this, you need the box template and 24 sheets of craft paper.
You can simply print the file onto the paper, or make a stencil. Then, cut along the solid lines and fold the dotted lines either by hand or with your cutting machine.
To make the advent calendar a bit more exciting, we mixed the boxes with Christmas crackers. If you’d like to try this too, simply wrap cardboard tubes with cute Christmas gift wrap and fill them with candy.
4. Now print out the 24 round designs, cut them out (with a cutting machine or scissors), and glue them to the Christmas crackers.
5. Fill the boxes with trinkets and gifts and hang them using string from the embroidery frame.
Now your beautiful Advent calendar is complete, ready to give to your loved ones to celebrate the days before Christmas!
