15 Fabulous DIY Advent Calendars for Grown Ups
It’s almost December! Can you believe it? Do you use advent calendars? I always thought that DIY Advent calendars would be a little bit rubbish because you already know what’s behind the doors…I was wrong. After seeing a few of these advent calendars I shall be making my own, despite the fact I already have a dairy free chocolate one ready to go! I’m getting very excited. I love December. I love that my December Daily albums always make me very mindful everyday, I take pleasure in the little things so December is always amazing for me. You could add little cards behind your advent calendar for fun activities to do each day.
I plan to draw myself a cut file (for my silhouette portrait machine I bought last month) emulating that fabulous papercut Christmas Tree advent calendar like Emilie’s beautiful work!
