Material : DIY - Advent Calendar 2017


  • Layer paper
  • Silver gift wrap
  • Odif golden glitter varnish
  • Golden cord
  • 80 x 60 cm wooden frame
  • scissors
  • sewing machine
  • numbers in felt
  • star punch

Step 1 – Pockets

Step 1 – Pockets
  • Make in tracing paper and silver gift wrap paper, 24 pockets of 8x5cm.
  • Apply Odif golden glitter varnish to 8 of them to cover them with a thin glitter film.
  • Sew the 24 pockets on 3 sides (if you don’t have a sewing machine, a simple transparent tape will do!)
  • Punch the top of each pouch with the star punch to create a star-shaped hook
  • Place the white felt stickers on each pouch

Step 2 – The glittery confetti

Step 2 – The glittery confetti
  • Make confetti in glitter paper using star and round perforators

Step 3 –gifts

Step 3 –gifts
  • Choose 24 small gifts (small plastic items – small jewels – Advent sandblasts…) and slip one in each bag, sprinkled with the bottom of the 24 bags of glittery confetti.

For my part, I chose to make small homemade shortbread (flour – butter – sugar) to be placed in 15 pouches. In the other 10, I alternate between small jewels and small plastic animals repainted in white to give them a winter look and glitter with the golden glitter varnish Odif.

Step 4 – Installation

Step 4 – Installation
  • Stretch 3 cords in the width of the wooden frame
  • Hang the pouches by passing the cord through the star-studded fasteners on each pouch

And here you have a great advent calendar realized by yourself:)
