I saw this Christmas Advent Calendar Muffin Tin idea on Pinterest, and I just had to share it with you guys! Isn’t it adorable? It’s a fun and frugalicious way to use some items you may already have in your own home, to make a home-made advent calendar. Here’s a quick how-to:
What you’ll need:
- Muffin tin
- Coloured card
- Magnets/ magnet strips
- Optional ribbons & bows
It’s fairly simple process to make this Christmas advent calendar, I am sure you can work it out from the image above.
- Simply cut out some card circles just big enough to cover the holes on your muffin tin.
- Decorate each card circle in any way you choose, making sure to number them 1 to 24.
- On the back of each piece of card, glue on some mini magnets or magnet strips (can get these in craft sections at dollar stores).
- Attach the cards to the muffin tin, hiding a little treat in each recess.
You can choose to put whatever you wish in the advent calendar – that’s what makes this a superb idea. It doesn’t have to be chocolate – it can be anything at all, from a joke to a tiny toy, a LEGO minifigure – anything you can imagine.
