DIY Holiday: An Advent Calendar Branch from the Garden

November 30, 2015

Count down to Christmas with a DIY advent calendar that brings a tiny forest indoors. We spotted this easy project at Greenhouse Juice; all you need is a branch adorned with a sprig of fragrant pine (and a few other supplies):

For a full list of materials and step-by-step instructions, see Greenhouse Juice. “Choose how many days you want in your Advent calendar or Hanukkah branch,” say the creators. “We chose twelve for the twelve days of Christmas.”

Above: For gift wrap from the garden, see Holiday Gift Wrap Ideas.

Suspended from a branch, tiny gifts can be wrapped in Kraft Paper and Twine and decorated with a sprig of something green. A 15-foot roll of Scotch Kraft Postal Wrapping Paper is $1.89 from Create for Less. A set of eight rolls of Nutscene Jute Twine is $14.95 from Williams-Sonoma.

Above: You also can wrap small bundles of berries and tiny pine cones to make miniature swags. For step-by-step directions, see DIY: Holiday Decor for Small Spaces.
