Advent Calendar - DIY

Central Europe as well as many other parts all around the world celebrates Christmas. One of the customs belonging to the pre-Christmas period is the advent calendar. Long before winter season comes, already in October, shops get filled with various chocolate containing calendars. These have 24 windows which are opened one by one every day starting from 1st December. The small chocolate squares waiting behind these windows are usually in the shape of any of the typical Christmas motives, such as a Christmas tree, candles, etc.

Since the calendars predominantly contain lower quality chocolates and the overall design is often somewhat childish. Thus, I decided to make the calendar all by myself and included various tea bags as treats instead.

Various tee bags.

How it was made.

The final result.

It was my very first attempt. Very enjoyable activity for long late autumn evenings, for sure. It is already 28th November, but if you still feel like, you may try to do something similar for yourself. It is a lot of fun to open a window/doors each morning and find a little surprise behind it.

To see how this advent calendar was made, watch my youtube video here.
