I had so much fun creating this Alternative Advent Calendar as part of my exciting creative collaboration on a series of crafting projects for Dunelm.
For me it was the perfect way to showcase their fabulous new fully recyclable wrapping paper and ribbon and kick of their Festival of Christmas which you can find on their website and YouTube Channel from 1st December 2020 It is super easy to make at home, all you will need is a:
- Broom handle
- Old faux garland
- Recyclable wrapping paper and ribbon
- 24 boxes in different shapes and sizes
- Faux foliage
- White card
- Number stencil (or make your own)
- Black paint
- Battery fairy lights
- Screws to wall mount (drill/screwdriver)
You can dip into the Festival of Christmas here and watch the 6 minute easy how-to film to take you through how to make an advent calendar step by step.Once me and Mr M take off the gifts one by one I will replace them with a bauble so we have a stunning wall mounted garland all through the festive season.
Thank you to Dunelm for all the products to make this tutorial and for supporting production costs.
