Winter Wonderland Advent Calender

Nov29Advent B 1600Have you made an Advent Calender, yet? This year, I envisioned a different kind of Advent Calender. I wanted to create a winter wonderland scene with 24 Christmas trees filled with delights.

Inspired by earlier pyramid work this year (herehere and here), I realized that this shape would be perfect for the scene!

There are infinite possibilities for these: print them in different sizes and colors; adhere pom poms, top with gold stars, paint each side a different color or shade, paint like trees or even, loop the top with ribbon to hang these instead — use your imagination and have fun!

I assembled, numbered and filled heavy, card stock trees. I wanted a clean and simple scene, so I printed three different sizes, on three shades of green card stock; labeled these in white (you can hand letter with ink, press on numbers or even stickers) then filled with treats. If these are made with a heavy card stock, they are re-useable.
Tutorial:
  • Print PDF Christmas Tree Box template (here).
  • This template can be printed at different sizes to easily have smaller and larger boxes.
HOW TO ASSEMBLE
  • After printing the template, place it on desired card stock and cut.
  • Note the flaps that will be folded over to secure the shape.
  • After cutting the template, carefully fold into the pyramid shape.
  • Assemble by gluing the side pyramid flap into place and with the top,
  • Decide if you would like to just close the top or for a more secure tree: glue, tie or secure with a piece of decorative tape. I recommend this,  if you are filling it with heavy objects.
