DIY Advent Calendar : Paper Bags


Create magical daily rituals in the lead-up to Christmas with this DIY Advent Calendar Kit.

24 brown paper gift bags ready for you to decorate and display however you wish.

Lovely in a row hanging on a garland of festive twine (included) or perhaps placed randomly around a simple branch tree.

Fill each bag with treasures, perhaps along the theme of the four elements of Advent:

The first week of Advent is the light of the stones, that shine through the crystals, seashells and bones.

The second week of Advent is the light of the plants, that rise up to the sun and in the breeze dance.

The third week of Advent is the light of the beasts, the faith that we see in the greatest and the least.

The fourth week of Advent is the light of humankind, the light of hope and thought, to love and understand.

Advent historically celebrates the four weeks in anticipation of Christmas, a time of peace, warmth, light and gentle preparation. The Advent Calendar originated in Germany , with the first known Advent Calendar, which was made by handwork, being from the year 1851.

Kit contains 24 brown heavy weight paper gift bags measuring 85x165x45mm gusset and 4 metres of festive cotton twine. 

Explore our Stocking Fillers for lots of cute little treasures.
