Der erste Advent

Wire Advent Calendar at Impressionen

Tealight Advent Display from Impressionen

Could be easy to recreate with an cake stand, some tea lights and vinyl numbers.
Think of the glow as with each day you approach the 25th. A perfect table centerpiece.



This clever idea just requires some construction paper and glue. And of course 25 little things that fit under 25 little cones.

This darling sewing project from Kristen Doran Design





In Germany, the first of Advent is a big deal. Its the beginning of that joyful and magical countdown to Christmas, promising a little treasure everyday. From a small morsel of chocolate to a more elaborate toy to build on your own, Advent Calendars can be a lovely DIY project for the holidays. You can make something to use over and over again, or something more streamlined like the paper envelopes shown above.

The nugget is still too small, so I'll save this project for next year.

Do you have a favorite Advent calendar that you have made? If yes, email me a picture at repurposedplayground@googlemail.com
