Festive fives: advent calendars

Throughout November and December, I’m going to be bringing you an edited selection of the best Christmas decorating ideas. Today, let’s get the countdown started with advent calendars.

3. Do-it-yourself baubles

I can’t find anyone who’s done this but I’ll try and make it and post the pictures to show you. I’ve seen some transparent baubles that you can open up and fill with treats.

This calendar would be less of a surprise than usual, but it would look great on the Christmas tree!
