Dollar Store Christmas Advent

This was a craft that we did at our ward's Super Saturday.

It was an advent calendar made from a cookie sheet and matchboxes which were both found at the dollar store. I think the most expensive part was probably the magnets and scrapbook paper.

I think it turned out pretty cute. I will probably be putting a strip of paper with a scripture about Christ in each box as well as a 2 little candies (like tootsie rolls, jolly ranchers or small dove chocolates).


  1. Wow, this one is really beautiful! Almost makes me wish I had some little ones to make one for.
