Chalkboard DIY Advent Equally adorable, and apparantly very simple to make is this chalkboard box advent tree – using chalkboard paint and a mini tree you might have on hand. Visit Oh Happy Day for the how-to!
My advent calendar consists of 24 little houses made out of paper. They can be easily folded flat for storage. Could be an easy way to create an elaborate Christmas village that is easy to store but looks fantastic and festive.
