We have a few months until Christmas, but I’m sharing this advent calendar idea with you now so you can get a head start on your holiday crafting. This advent calendar is so simple to make, and the matchbooks are just the right size for small candies or treats…
The idea for this came from Country Living, and, I’m telling you, it’s one of the easiest and cheapest advent calendars out there. Here’s what you need to make one for yourself…
Step 1: Empty your matchbooks (I found mine 10 for $1 at Dollar Tree), and then hot glue the tops to each other so that you have 5 rows: one row of 9, one of 7, one of 5, one of 3 and one of 1.
Step 2:Wrap each row of matchbooks. I used scrapbook paper, but wrapping paper or kraft paper would work well, too.
Have a crafty day!
