I made this advent calendar for Country Living. It's made of matchboxes and some scraps of paper.

  1. Just hot glue the tops of empty boxes to one another so you get rows.
  2. The bottom should be 9 and decrease by two until you have a single box.
  3. Cut wrapping paper to cover each row, secure with hot glue.
  4. Then hot glue the rows in a tree shape as shown.
  5. I used small stamps to stamp the numbers on each box.
  6. On top you can hot glue a star or a cut out like I did on this one.
  7. Fill the boxes with candy and trinkets and you are ready to go.
