DIY Advent Calendar!

This year I decided to do something a little different for my boyfriend’s Advent Calendar as sadly I couldn’t quite afford this £140 Rum filled Drinks By The Dram one from Selfridges….

So I took the next best option and went on eBay – I bought 25 paper sweet bags, 20m red and white bakers twine and some numbered vintage looking stickers. I sourced a large twig and some ivy from the park and bought a selection of his favourite chocolate – plus a little extra something for his birthday day which is in December.

After filling the bags, I sealed them and tied them to on to the twig.

When all the bags were attached (3 hours later…) I finished it off with the sprig of ivy.

And voila!
