DIY Nordic tree Advent Christmas Calendar

Anya Jensen28th November 2016
My lovely blogger friend Bianca, from Little Scandinavian, has made the most stunning DIY Advent calendar, and I was so lucky to feature it in SIMPLY HYGGE magazine. I absolutely adore it, and if you hurry you can easily make one just in time for the 1st of December this Thursday:advent_kalendar

“Christmas is upon us and there’s nothing better than a festive countdown calendar to help getting into the festive spirit. Every year we have a ‘fill your own’ advent calendar for our two daughters, with a daily surprise. We used to have a very simple ‘peg on a thread’ calendar, which has been useful. But the time had come to update our home for Advent.

We saw a Nordic tree calendar on the Oh Joy craft blog and thought it would match our Scandinavian home very well. We made a few adjustments to it, to our personal taste; with the geometric designed gift bags in muted colours, only broken up by a few monochrome ones and a dash of sparkly gold… We enjoyed working on it it together and the finished result, a highly decorative wall hung Ad- vent Calendar is both beautiful when decorated as it is when left bare. And it was surprisingly easy to make.

According to our Norwegian traditions the Christmas tree shouldn’t be brought in any earlier than just before the big day itself. But with this advent calendar doubling as a festive backdrop in your home, all your December glögg and gingerbread parties with friends and family will be a lot more festive.

“It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas! “

FOR the rest of the DIY – please have a look at Simply Hygge Magazine – the article is on page 12 – 15.

    Nice, I think this is simple and beautiful. it’s not taken so much time. Also, children like to make these easy and simple ideas for Christmas decorations. it is stunning and good tree decoration. last days I am searching for the best ideas for my home. my sister and some relatives ask me how they decorate their houses, so every Christmas I suggest ideas.
