DIY Advent Calendar

Steps

1

Take out the drawers from each box

2

Using E6000 glue each box together in the design that you want

3

Use paper clips to hold each box together securely while the glue is drying

4

While the boxes are drying, take push pins and put them through the drawers on the backside (these will be the handles)

5

Once the boxes are dry you can insert the drawers back in

6

Now is the best part!
DECORATE IT!

Finished Look

I left my advent calendar clean, simple, and bare so that every year I can decorate it differently depending on my style.  You could even add sticker numbers or draw on the numbers for each day.  I might end up doing that at some point but right now I’m loving this minimalistic approach.  I love the simplicity of these bottle brush trees this year.  You can find them everywhere! From Target, Walmart, or even Amazon.
