At Rocky Mountain Flatbread we are joining the handmade revolution this holiday season! Over the next few weeks we will share with you some of our favourite handmade holiday gifts, green gift ideas and fun crafty projects.
Today we are featuring homemade advent calendars!
Here is a great easy craft we found from Country Living.
Use ordinary grocery-store matchboxes to count down the days till Christmas. Just hot-glue the tops of empty boxes to one another to form rows (start with nine boxes for the base, and decrease by two until you have a single box). Cut wrapping paper to cover each section; secure with hot glue. Next, hot-glue the rows in a pyramid shape as shown. Use number stamps (available at craft stores) to mark the boxes 1 through 25, then fill with candy and trinkets.
