It’s Not Too Late! Make This DIY Advent Calendar Wall Tree

‘Tis the season for advent calendars! In just a couple days you should be starting your advent calendar, so it’s time to scramble and put one together ASAP. Lucky for you, we’ve got a simple way to do just that and it doubles as decor. We’ve teamed up with Velcro Industries to create an advent calendar and wall tree in one — and it’s made up of the best wrapped gifts ever.

Materials:

– 25 little boxes

– wrapping paper

– tissue paper

– ribbons, pom pom, trim, gift toppers, etc.

– VELCRO® Brand Thin Fasteners

– VELCRO® Brand Garland Tie, Red

– gift tags

Tools:

– thumbtacks

– tape

– scissors

– optional: Cricut Machine for cutting out numbers

Instructions:

1. Stock up on a bunch of little gift boxes. They should all be the same size.

2. Fill your boxes with gifts. Wrap the boxes.

3. Add ribbon, trim, pom poms and more. Repeat with all 25 boxes.

4. Then use a Cricut to cut out numbers on sticky vinyl. You can also buy readymade vinyl numbers on Amazon. Attach numbers to gift tags.

5. Attach VELCRO® Brand Thin Fasteners to the back of each gift. Then top with a gift tag.

6. Lay out your tree. Then measure out how much VELCRO® Brand Garland Tie you need for each row. Cut VELCRO® Brand Garland Tie to size.

7. Use thumbtacks (or nails) to attach to the wall.

8. Then attach your gifts. Simple as that.

Stock up on a bunch of little gift boxes. They should all be the same size. In this photo, you’ll also see a Cricut, which we used to cut out numbers for gift tags. You can also buy readymade vinyl numbers on Amazon.

Fill your boxes with gifts. We went on a bit of a spree in the B+C Shop and went with a Laser Cut Pendant NecklaceNeighborwoods Coasters and Stud Earrings.

Wrap up all your boxes.

Then add ribbon, trim, pom poms and more.

Repeat with all 25 boxes.

Lay out your tree on a table. Measure out how much VELCRO® Brand Garland Tie you need for each row. Cut VELCRO® Brand Garland Tie to size.

Use thumbtacks (or nails) to attach strips of VELCRO® Brand Garland Tie to the wall. Then attach your gifts! Simple as that.

Doesn’t that look festive and gorgeous? We want to open all the gifts right now! :)
