Homemade Advent Calendars
It’s almost that point of the year. Advent calendar time! However, instead of buying a standard chocolate one this year, why not get in touch with your creative side and make your own. Matchboxes are ideal for lots of DIY creations and work perfectly here as they’re actually little drawers. Simply glue a couple together in a pyramid style and go on the search for those tiny daily gifts.
Bottle Cap Snowmen
These little men are a simple, yet effective way to give an instant Christmassy vibe to your home. Whether you make them to hang on the tree or your door handles, they are easy and ridiculously cheap to make. All you need are numerous bottle caps, white, black and orange acrylic paint, paintbrushes, glue, buttons and scissors.
Glittered Light Bulbs
These glittery light bulbs are a fantastic way to add a Christmassy feel to your home and brighten up your tree. They are also a perfect way to re-use your old worn out light bulbs and give them a new lease of life. Once you’ve got your bulbs, a tub of glitter and some pva glue you’re all set!
Santa is synonymous with Christmas and so these cute little objects are the perfect Christmas essential! You’ll need polystyrene cones, white fur fabric, black velvet ribbon, white pompom balls, square jewels and red velvet. Firstly cover the polystyrene with the red velvet.
Next glue the pompom ball on the top and place the fur round the bottom. Next step, half way up the cone, is to add the black velvet ribbon. Final step is to add the jewels on the ribbon so it looks like a belt. That’s it, you’re done! Enjoy!
