Elegant and Easy Advent Calendars for Adults

These advent calendars are a lovely way to count down the days until Christmas. You can fill these with poetic verses for your loved one, a gift certificate, tickets for the cinema, CD’s, etc... The basic materials you will need are large white envelopes and metallic or elegant looking wrapping paper and you will require about 2-3 hours time to make these because of the drying time of the paint.
