Homemade Chocolate Advent Calendar

Sunday, December 17, 2006

Julie Ree's Advent CalendarFellow maker Julie Ree puts the template for chocolate holding paper pyramids to great use by making an advent calendar garland.

I love how she uses the little pyramids as sculptural objects to decorate her house.

This is a wonderful reminder to share those gems of an idea you may have; when shared, the idea can get even better!


Julie Ree's Advent Calendar25 pyramids are printed.

Each is decorated with its own number.

Chocolates or goodies are put into each one, and then sealed up, making sure to include a ribbon loop to hang the pyramid by.

To Use:
One pyramid is opened each day of December, as you sweetly count down your way to Christmas.

This is absolutely charming. I wouldn’t mind having a yearly calendar like that, looping its way around my home…

i LOVE this! so darling – are they stamped or hand done?

I don’t know- ask Julie Ree, the blogger who made them. I suspect that they may be computer printed?
They are really cute!

Brilliant idea and they are so beautiful. Where can I buy them? I guess I will have to make them myself.
