DIY Advent calendar

neon cool trendy

Hi guys.
 I know everyone is super crazy about making advent calendars right now, and I have to admit, with so many pretty projects around, I started wanting one too. Try to be original here !
I remember having advent calendars when I was growing up, all through my childhood and teenage years, the kind where you would open a little door and there would be a cute little picture and a chocolate waiting just for you. 
I just adore the idea of 24 pretty boxes, bags or whatever it might be filled with a little surprise for each day, awaiting Christmas. They are really charming and also serve as a gorgeous december decoration. Just have a look at this pretty project.
I mean how can you resist these colors? I can't!
I found it on German website living at home and love, love, love every detail of it.

The idea of using snack boxes, different wrapping papers, masking tapes and colored papers is fantastic because it allows the creativity to bloom.

There are endless possibilities and options to style it pretty. You can play with it, glue it, cut it, wrap it, personalize it and make it just the way you like it.

Just don't forget to fill the boxes up with all the joyful things!

So have you already got your calendar? Are you going to make one?
 Any particular style you're thinking of?  

Have a beautiful day!
