Wall decoration for Christmas, Advent calendar made with a twig and paper bags
Advent Calendars originate from the 19th century. They make beautiful Christmas decorations and add fun to counting down the exciting days before Christmas. Vintage Advent calendars transformed over the centuries and turn into fun Christmas decorations filled with chocolate and toys. Gerhard Lang printed the first advent calendar in 1908 in Munich, and in the 1950s, chocolate advent calendars came to the shelves to purchase.
Nowadays, we create cute handmade advent calendars for kids, pets, and ourselves to add more fun and excitement to Christmas. DIY advent calendars consist of 25 boxes, bags, or envelopes to open – one for each day. A single chocolate treat or a little toy inside keeps all kids and adults interested in the Christmas countdown.
