DIY Advent Calendar / Overview


Cut banderoles from the patterned papers matching the size of the cans: Height x circumference of the cans + 1 cm. Place the banderoles around the cans and glue them together with tesafilm®.

DIY Advent Calendar / Step 1


Cut strips from the gray paper: Circumference of the can + 1 cm x 1.5 to 3 cm width - depending on the height of the can. Cut or punch circles in different sizes. Again, the size of the circles depends on the size of the can and the width of the paper strips. The proportions should be consistent. Use the glue stick to fix the circles to the center of the strips.
