How to Make an Advent House


All things Christmas need a bit of glitter and this beautifully decorated advent house has plenty!

It’s a great project to get you ready for the big day and will fit perfectly into a festive winter wonderland. Once finished, you can fill your house with whatever sweets and treats you fancy, and it can be stored away to use for years to come!

Project with thanks to Debbie Thorne


You Will Need Craft Essentials How to Make

1. Paint the entire house using white paint, then add colour accents to the drawer fronts and chimney as required using the remaining colours.

Top Tip!

Leave the drawers open to do this so that they don’t stick.

2. Use PVA to apply gold glitter to a few of the remaining drawer fronts, and then leave to dry.
