3 Simple Advent Calendars

Three simple calendars which you can make yourself:

1. Cut out an oblong piece of cloth approximately 1 ½ meters long and 25 centimeters wide. Embroider small Christmas characters on the cloth and attach 24 small curtain rings for hanging gifts.

2. Gather 24 cardboard toilet paper tubes. Arrange and glue them horizontally to form a pyramid-shape. Cover the toilet paper tube pyramid with cloth and place small angles to complete the pyramid effect. The hole in each of the rolls is used for hiding a gift.

3. Collect 24 big matchboxes and glue them together on top of each other. Decorate with clothing and angels. Each matchbox now serves as a small drawer for hiding a gift in the christmas calender.
