Advent Calendar Decorated With Wrapping Paper

The advantage of wooden advent calendars is that you can reuse them year after year. Why not use scraps of your favourite wrapping paper to decorate the calendar? Hide special gifts, surprises or candies in each of the tiny wooden drawers ahead of time so that you’re ready for the countdown to Christmas on December 1!

Instructions:

1. Use a circular object or compass and a pencil to draw a circle on the face of the wooden advent calendar.

2. Paint the inside of the circle white and the outside grey.

3. Remove the drawers. Using Mod Podge and a brush, glue small pieces of wrapping paper to the parts of the drawer faces painted grey, leaving the excess paper sticking out on the sides. Leave the parts painted white untouched.

4. Using a precision knife, cut off the excess paper sticking out on the sides of the drawers.

5. Paint the inside and outside edges of the calendar red.

6. Apply strips of double-sided adhesive tape to the outside edges of the calendar and apply strands of yarn to the strips. Start by gluing the end of the strand of yarn to the adhesive strip and follow along the entire surface until it is completely covered with yarn. 

7. Use a pencil to draw a star in the centre of the white circle. Cut out strips of double-sided adhesive tape to cover the star, apply the mirror effect leaf to the tape and lift to transfer the coated mirror effect to the star.

8. Write numbers 1 to 24 on the upper left-hand corners of the drawers in fine point marker. For greater consistency and attractive numbering, use a pencil to mark the area in which to place the numbers and print them using word processing software.

9. Place tiny homemade gifts and candies in each of the 24 calendar drawers so that you’re ready for the countdown to Christmas on December 1.
