DIY Advent Calendar Garland Using Paper Bags

I love the idea of giving small gifts to an individual on the last twelve days before Christmas. This fun and super easy DIY advent calendar garland is perfect for counting down the days to Christmas! All it takes is 3 steps.



  • Paper bags
  • Permanent marker
  • Scissors
  • Twine
  • Tape
  • Gifts


Step 1: Write the numbers of the days onto each bag. Try and put them in the same location for easy finding for little ones.


Step 2: Now flip your bags over (in order!) and tape them all together so they create a garland. Make sure they are evenly spaced, too.


Step 3: Fill the bags with the little gifts and tape them shut! Now just hang it up and enjoy!
