Last advent calendar


Only a few days left until December 1st but still enough time to create this easy advent calendar that doesn’t need too much space and if necessary is to be put aside. You’ll find etagères in every deco store or shops for baking supplies but it’s more fun to make one yourself. I took two wooden stars in different sizes which are connected with a round bar. It’s simply fixed to the lower star with a screw coming through the star’s bottom. Both, bar and bottom need to be drilled (use a simple hand drill) in order to screw them together. The upper star will get a center hole the size of the bar’s diameter. Push your bar through that hole and fix it with some wood glue. The bar should surmount the upper star for about 10cm and the top is decorated with a small Christmas star and colored ribbons. Matching with the star’s wood I chose some brown paper and repeated the elks’ color by writing the calendar numbers on red Christmas balls. The content of your gifts may vary from sweets to sanitary products, to make-up articles, raffle tickets or vouchers. Choose what you like or what the addressee would like.
