How to assemble your homemade advent calendar

Making a DIY advent calendar couldn’t be easier! First things first, you’ll need to get hold of one of our new advent calendar kits.

It contains everything you need to assemble the advent calendar itself, including 24 boxes, 24 number stickers and festive string. The boxes are flat-packed and super easy to put together – aren’t they cute?!

Once you’ve assembled each box, stick on one of the gold number stickers. There’s one box for every day leading up to Christmas!

Advent Calendar Stickers

And now for the fun part – fill each box with a small treat or gift! We’d recommend starting off with smaller gifts like sweets and chocolate and saving the best gifts til last.

Here are some ideas for what to put in your advent calendar!

  • Sweets
  • Chocolate
  • Nail varnish
  • Make-up (lipstick, lip gloss, etc)
  • Christmas baubles
  • Money
  • Socks
  • Jewellery (earrings, necklaces, bracelets)

Personalised Advent Calendar Boxes

And that’s it! All that’s left is to hang your advent calendar boxes on the Christmas tree ready to be opened each day!
