I partnered with Joe Fresh for a holiday advent calendar project that’s both seasonal and stylish. Here’s how to make one of your own. This post originally appeared on Joe Fresh Post.
Advent calendars have typically been reserved for kids, but who says adults can’t have fun counting down the days to Christmas too? I wanted to take a fresh and modern approach to a traditional advent calendar and decided to create an ultra-cool version that not only includes some great gift items from Joe Fresh but also doubles as a fantastic holiday display for the home!
Be sure to incorporate sweet messages and I.O.U.’s for that special someone!
Make each day in December extra memorable with a beautiful D.I.Y. advent calendar to share with your loved ones.
What You Will Need:
- Assorted jewelry, accessories, and beauty products from Joe Fresh
- Tree Branch (Painted in White)
- Assorted Gift Tags (or make them with decorative card stock)
- Assorted Small Gift Boxes
- Number Stickers (1 – 24)
Step 1: Fill gift boxes with your favourite jewelry, beauty products, and small accessories from Joe Fresh.
Step 2: If you don’t have enough purchased gift tags, create your own gift tags with decorative card stock.
Step 3: Number your tags and gift boxes with stickers.
Step 4: Write fun messages on back of tags as countdown surprises!
Step 5: Arrange gift tags and boxes in order.
Step 6: Affix in order onto branch with tied twine.
Step 7: Hang branch advent calendar display from ceiling. And your countdown to Christmas will be more fun and festive than ever!
I hope you enjoyed this great DIY to kick off your holidays! I’ve got another Holiday DIY in partnership with Joe Fresh coming up later this month, be sure to follow along for more!
Love the idea!
