Painted Tree Advent Calendar Project

How to Decorate a Tree Advent Calendar #Christmas #advent #neon

Festive crafts don’t have to be all red, green and gold. This painted tree advent calendar is painted in bright, neon colours to give your Christmas an extra pop!

It’s a great alternative idea for teens or anyone else that wants to break from tradition and is so simple to make too. Get the whole family involved with advent craft this year and begin the Christmas countdown!

Top Tip!…Trim the backs of the poms before gluing in place for a flusher fit.

6. Once everything is completely dry, pop all the drawers back into place and fill with your chosen treats.
