Loving homemade decorations and gifts, I looked at the little empty matchbox, "there must be something to do with this cute little thing." Seems I am not the only one that thinks so. The following are advent calendars made out of decorated matchboxes. I hope they inspire you to get creative this Christmas.
These were made from covering the little boxes and then taping or glueing them together.
- Little candies and trinkets
- A word or name from the Bible. Whoever reads a verse at the dinner table with that name in it gets an extra Christmas cookie for dessert.
- For just couples...something romantic in each box; a long kiss, lunch together, etc.
- Coupons for good or fun deeds.
