Diy advent calendar countdown: merry magnets

01 November 2015

For the last of our advent calendar countdown ideas, we thought we’d use one of the home’s most popular destinations during the holidays: the fridge.


To make this advent calendar, we used GRUNDTAL magnetic containers and labeled the lids with a marker. We left some see-through and decorated others with festive wrapping paper and ribbon. Then we filled them with gifts and arranged them in the shape of a Christmas tree on the fridge. It’s the perfect way to enjoy a treat every day of December.

That’s the last of our advent calendar ideas. Be sure to check out the rest for inspiration on creating your own countdown to Christmas: , an advent calendar for the kitchen and a socks-turned-stockings.
