craft your own advent calendar village


Ho ho ho, the countdown is on!

Christmas craft isn’t just reserved for primary school kids (and neither are treat-filled advent calendars). Julie, the crafty lass behind Clever Poppy, agrees that getting into the festive spirit is as good a reason as any to whip out the scissors and Clag. She has kindly created a template for these adorable paper gingerbread houses, which you can download for free over here.

While Julie’s lovely DIY Christmas village is designed to be an advent calendar, we reckon the houses would make extra-special gift boxes, too. Head this-a-way for her handy instructions.
