Only having a chocolate advent calendar is a thing of the past now with the amazing array of beauty, candle and even gin advent calendars available!
But for a lovely idea why not make your own and fill the envelopes with things to do throughout December.
I had a mixture of little bags, envelopes and then also made my own envelopes (I simply used existing envelopes in different sizes to trace round and glue back together) – Mollie Makes has different designs of paper in every issue so I used these to make mine.
Then simply pop the idea on a nice bit of paper and peg to the sequin trim. I cut the trim into 4 lengths to make the rows and then stuck it to the wall with gold polka dot washi tape at either end – Happy Christmas!!
Ideas of things to do:
- Bake Christmas cookies
- Watch a Christmas film in bed
- Have a Starbucks red cup
- Have an indoor festive picnic
- Make Christmas cocktails
- Scrabble night
- Ice skating
- Decorate the tree
