MATCHBOX CAL­EN­DAR

Essentials (South Africa) - - CRAFT -

Make a per­son­alised ad­vent cal­en­dar that can be used year af­ter year. Paint 24 empty match­boxes, num­ber them and glue to­gether up­right, six wide by four high, to form a rec­tan­gle. Cut pieces of balsa wood for the base and sides. Cut two match­ing tri­an­gles from the wood, with one edge the same width as the house, then use two more pieces of wood to cre­ate the roof – add a chim­ney if you like. At­tach every­thing to­gether us­ing a glue gun. Fill the match­boxes with treats.
