DIY: Last Minute Advent Calendar

After collecting my favourite beauty Advent calendars, I thought it would be cool to share some DIY calendar ideas as well. In fact his post isn't really about making your own Advent calendar (as it's already close to Advent and nobody ain't go time for that!, haha) but it's a little collection of available Advent calendars which you can fill with your own surprises. Of course you can also take these as inspirations for a real DIY Advent calendar, for example the one with the boxes could also be made of boxes you still have at home or you could sew some bags to make something like #3 (and I don't need to mention how easy it would be to make #5!). Personally I just bought something like #1 to fill it with sweets for my boyfriend. And even though I was too lazy to make a real DIY tutorial, I was not too lazy to collect 24 items under 24€ which you can use to fill your Advent calendar (DIY or not).
