DIY Advent Calendar // Welcome to Christmas

Yay!! It's Advent. Happy Advent and Christmas Month everyone!! I finally got round to making my advent calendar, around 3 days late. But it was worth it and I love it so so much. I've never made an advent calendar so I loved trying to think of different ideas. I had an idea for matchboxes but I didn't have 24 matchboxes or the energy to make 24 matchboxes. I've used brown paper envelopes and present shapes from Kikki-K gift bags instead. But I think I love it even more than I would have.

I added lots of photos from Social Print Studio and chocolates into my calendar and I am going to add activities cards into the days for after school is over. I only have just over a week to go so I'm getting really excited and my brain is slowly transferring to holiday mode. I can't wait to have lots of spare time to make Christmas crafts and celebrate the new year.

I also went to Taylor Swift's Red Tour Concert on Saturday night. It was amazing and I really want to go again. If any of you Australia readers are going, you definitely have something to look forward too, she is incredible and the show is amazing. You will be mesmerised. x Harri

P.S. I'm so so close to 100 hundred followers. I've got something exciting planned for when I reach it!! x



  1. Aww this is such a sweet little idea! I would have loved to have made an advent calender, but I have left it a bit late now!
    I wish I could've gone to Red, but she didn't come to SA :(

  2. Nice advent calendar it looks cute and professional. As a matter of fact, I am Australian and I will be going to the Taylor Swift concert this Saturday!! I'm glad that you enjoyed the show, I'm really looking forward to it.

  3. Oh I cannot believe it either!
    I only have 8 more days of being in Primary school, until... I will b in high school!
