Advent Calendar Tutorial

I’ve been wanting to make a cute advent calendar for awhile and this year I decided would be the time. However cute stocking on a string draping across a fireplace or staircase just wasn’t possible for me. You see we don’t have a staircase or fireplace here in AZ so that cute idea had to go out the window. So after lots of pondering I decided to make a dessert stand to hold our little stocking stuffer items to open each day.


3 Plates (each slight smaller then the other)
2 Candle stick holders
Green Spray Glossy Paint
E6000 Glue
Stocking Stuffer Items (I picked up all mine at Kmart)
Wrapping Paper Supplies

Here’s out to make the holder…

1. Spray paint the 3 plates and 2 candle holders, let dry completely

2. Use E6000 to adhere the plates to candle stick holders, each candle stick holder between a plate.

After your stand is finished wrap your gifts and attach numbered cards to each gift. Then display them on your stand and place it on a dinner table or hallway stand.
