「handmade」Advent Calendar – Christmas Winter Owls

This year I ordered some material to get crafty and make a special Advent Calendar with Christmas Winter owls & their houses in festive, seasonal decoration (^_^)DSCN2507
We hung it up in the baby room, but of course, our four and a half months young daughter is still too young to understand the concept of an advent calendar. Thus, I will “test” it this year and my husband filled it with sweets for me. From next year on, we will fill it for our sweet little girl. DSCN2508 DSCN2509
Basically it was a set with all the motives printed on cardboard, but how you put the pieces together was totally up to me, so it’s a one-of-a-kind calendar which you can fill with whatever you like 🙂 DSCN2510
Are those owls just super cute or are they super cute???DSCN2514
If you look closely you can see that the decorative pieces such as the present boxes are layered – it’s a sort of 3D effect. The set also included some little plastic rhinestone bling-bling which one can add in whatever way you like. DSCN2516
On the front and back you have peep-holes which feeds the curious soul! DSCN2518
On the side there is a little door to open and fill or take out sweets (or whatever you like) of each owl house DSCN2520

I think it’s just such an adorable winter-advent calendar idea – and of course very fitting with the owl theme of our baby room.

Today is the 1st Sunday in Advent!! Hope you all spend the day comfortably 🙂

    It really is a sweet advent calendar, I also like the fact that these are little houses. Yep, nothing else than this calendar would have fitted into Nanami’s room. ;D

    1. THANK YOU!
      When I stumbled over it on a crafty website, I had to order the set, and worked 3 days on putting all the owl houses together the way I like them – they may have similar colours but none is like the other, the owls have different accessories and it makes every house unique. I just like colourful things, especially for children, and so thought this would suit Nanami’s room so well!!

      Will post an update with the other advent calendar we have this year in a minute 😉
