Advent Calendar

Christmas time is ideal for crafts. I always used to do Christmas crafts for my home and my friends but I never did an advent calendar. The one I am going to share with you now is something I found on pinterest and I liked it a lot. I enjoyed doing it and since my kids are grown up now I am going to give it to my 9-year-old niece. I hope she will enjoy the process.


  • 25 toilet paper rolls
  • Several treats and miniature toys
  • White tissue paper
  • Silver string or thin ribbon
  • Xmas wrapping paper
  • Printed numbers from 1 to 25
  • Ribbon for hanging


Place 2 treats and 2 miniature toys in each toilet paper roll
Wrap each roll with tissue paper. Then twist the ends and tie them with the string or ribbon

Cut the wrapping paper to the same width as the toilet paper roll. Put it around each roll and secure it with tape on the back side

Glue each roll one on top of the other with the glue gun

Finish each one off by gluing a number to identify just how many more days until Christmas.
Reinforce the back of the rolls with a carton paper in order to make it more solid.

Add a piece of ribbon at the top and hang it on the wall

You can start tearing off one side every day as from December 1st!!!!
