Get ready for the Christmas countdown with a DIY advent calendar!
This homemade advent calendar is quick and easy to make, reusable year after year and most importantly, it's made using removable hooks that won't damage your walls! Let's get started!
How to Make a DIY Advent Calendar
- VELCRO® Brand HANGables® Micro Removable Hooks
- 25 fabric bags with numbers
- Chocolates (or other treats of your choice!)
- Christmas tree decoration shaped like a star
What to do
This DIY advent calendar could not be easier to make!
Start with a pack of VELCRO® Brand HANGables® Micro Removable Hooks and stick them to the wall in the shape of a Christmas tree. The beauty of using these removable hooks instead of pins is that they'll peel cleanly off the wall after Christmas, leaving no marks!
Next, take 25 fabric bags and number them 1-25 (we bought some fabric numbers and stuck them on with PVA glue). Then fill each bag with a different treat!
Now to finish assembling your homemade advent calendar! Hang a Christmas tree decoration shaped like a star on the top hook and then hang a fabric bag off each hook.
When Christmas is over and each bag is empty, this reusable advent calendar could not be easier to take down and store away! Each removable hook will peel cleanly off the wall without leaving any marks and the bags can be stored away until next year!
