DIY Advent Calendar

Check out this DIY advent calendar. Kids will be so excited to break the tissue paper for each day’s surprise!

How to create a DIY advent calendar

One of the best parts about this project is how easy it is to put together. All you need are:

  • Posterboard
  • Tissue Paper
  • 25 Rubber Bands
  • 25 Solo Cups
  • Marker
  • Glue
  • 25 items for the surprises

Start by gluing the base of each Solo Cup to your poster board. We liked creating a 5x5 box and adding a bow at the top so it looked like a Christmas gift. Then add a surprise to each cup. Place a piece of tissue paper over the top of the cup and secure it with one of the rubber bands. Once each cup is finished label them 1 through 25 and you’re good to go!

Have fun creating what is sure to be a great new holiday tradition!
