I love seeing inanimate objects – like uninteresting matchboxes – transformed into delightful decorations with a bit of paper, ribbon and creativity.
Grouped together to create a one-of-a-kind advent calendar, the tiny “drawers” of matchboxes are perfect places to store chocolates, candies and toys. Any of these DIY options would be a perfect family craft activity leading up to the Christmas countdown.

I used to make advent calendars like this when I was a child… I must try to make one this year with my daughter! 🙂
