How to Make an Advent Calendar Present Stack
No matter how old you are, it’s always exciting when the presents start to stack up around the tree at Christmas time. This festive Advent is made of a stack of lots of little presents which you can fill with chocolates, treats and whatever else you like!
The advent comes completely blank so you can decorate it however you fancy, each tier also detaches for ease of decorating so there’s no excuse not to crack out the craft supplies and get making!

Suitable for: Intermediates
Time to make: Four to five hours
1. Firstly, disassemble the stack to make decoration easier. Then paint the layers in separate colours and leave to dry.
2. Decorate the individual boxes with a strip of ribbon, papers, paper hearts and number toppers.
3. Using individual loops of ribbon glued with PVA, assemble a ribbon on the largest box lid and allow to dry.
4. Once the advent is completely dry reassemble and fill with your Advent treats of choice!
