How to make an advent calendar from paper rolls?
The first step is to wrap the paper roll. I tried several versions and finally decided to wrap the tip with brown paper and tie it with jute string.
Then I wrote the numbers with a marker.
The next step is to glue the rolls with hot glue. I started by joining the rows of 4 rolls, then glued the rows together to form a cuboid of 6 rows of rolls.
The last step is to prepare the roof from a piece of cardboard or cardboard. I also made a chimney out of a piece of extra roll 🙂
After putting candy or advent tasks into your calendar, seal the back of your calendar with cardboard or cardboard.

Nothing gives more satisfaction than doing something yourself. I haven’t even thought about DIY as my hobby, I’ve just done different “projects” when it was needed. Sometimes it’s a disguise for the Masquerade Party in kindergarten. Another time, cutting out the pumpkin and baking the witch’s fingers for Haloween. Or simply organizing holiday souvenirs. Now I decided to share my realizations with you. Let’s go it together!
