Matchbox Advent Calendar


This project was a part of my 12 Days of Vintage, Upcycled, Recycled, and Repurposed Christmas. You can still sign up on my blog to get 12 days of DIY Christmas projects sent to you via email. I think this is the first projects I made... years ago. And still one of my favorites!

I started with 25 little matchboxes.

I painted them red and green and then started decorating them with little bits from my collection.

I printed copies of my old family photos so no photos were damaged in the making of this project!

This last photo is just for inspiration. My next Advent calendar may have something to do with Bingo numbers!
