Christmas Advent Calendar

Hi guys,

sorry I didn´t post in a while. I was really busy with school, but today I helped my mom make an Advent Calendar and I thought I could share the idea with you. So, lets get started:

What you need:

  • 24 or 25 paper lunch bags (In Germany Christmas is celebrated December, 24th; so we just made 24 bags)
  • wooden numbers or a pen
  • optional: glue
  • any other decorations
  • a sewing machine
  • filling (e.g. candy, sayings…)

How to make your Advent Calendar:

  1. Optional: Cut your bags to the size you want them to be (we just cut off about 2 inches of the top).
  2. Apply the numbers 1-24/25 onto your bags (we found little wooden hearts with numbers, so we hot glued them on to the front of each bag; but you can also use number stickers or just write them on with a pen)
  3. Decorate your bags with stickers, tape… or you can just leave them plain too.
  4. Fill your bags with sweets, cards or whatever else you feel like (we filled ours with a piece of chocolate and one card with a fact about Christmas).
  5. Sew the top of your bags, to close them.
  6. You are done!

I hope you liked this post and will make an Advent Calendar like this for somebody too. If you want to share your creations please write to, I´d like to see what you make.
