2. Toilet Roll Calendar

Making your own advent calendar became huge this year, and I love this tutorial. It’s great for using up items that you already have around the house! First, collect up 24 empty toilet roll holders. Glue into a festive shape – mine is tree shaped, because I fail miserably at stars – and fill each tube with an advent pressie. Then glue brown paper across the top, and add numbers. Easy, and cute.
