step-1a step-1b

Step one:  Paint the edges and the back of the tree with green paint.  I used a lovely shade from Waverly called “Fern”.


Step two:  Trace and trim paper to fit the wood tree, trunk, and base.

  1. What an awesome idea this is! I love advent calendars and love seeing ones that are so unique. Of course, G45 papers, Petaloo floral & Xyron adhesives are a perfect combo to make it come all together so beautifully as this.

  2. Fantastic advent tree. Looks simple enough to make. Unfortunately, I don’t have any small kids anymore. They’re all grown and moved away. Maybe when I get grandkids, I can make one of these for them. Thanks for sharing the tutorial.

  3. Love the idea of adding the presents.
    If you put them all on at first and then
    take them off you are ruining the
    look of the tree.
    It’s a wonderful advent calendar.
    thanks for sharing.

  4. Every year I tell myself I will make an advent calendar and I still haven’t done it. Now I have even more motivation after seeing what you made. Thank you!

  5. What a great idea for a countdown calendar! The little gifts are adorable – would love to see what’s inside!

  6. This advent calendar would be perfect to make with my grandkids. They always love counting down the days. Thanks for sharing such an awesome project.
