Create your own advent calendar each year with this stunning wooden hanging letter. Designed and made exclusively by us in our small studio in Cheltenham, it's the perfect way to countdown to Christmas.
We love an advent calendar here at Betsy Benn - we get very excited about the arrival of December and who wouldn't? Over the years we've tried out lots of different varieties of advent calendars and we all agree that the very BEST ones are the ones you can fill yourself. It's the perfect solution to making sure the recipient gets exactly the kinds of gifts they love every day and there's zero waste (which is so important now).
So, we designed the perfect way to display the gifts that you source! An initial of your choice, cut from sustainably sourced cherry veneer wood that we have overprinted with a mist forest scene, with an array of cut-out stars. Towards the bottom, there are more than enough stars from which to hang 24 or 25 small advent gifts. At the top there are two stars, strung with ribbon, to hang your advent calendar on the wall. (Added bonus - an advent calendar that doesn't take up precious tabletop space is a dream I tell you!)
This is the last advent calendar you will ever need to buy as it can be used year after year and even displayed in a bedroom or kitchen when not being used for advent. They look so beautiful with string lights behind the stars!
The only thing left to do now is to choose your gifts (and we have a blog post FULL of inspiration to help you out). Our large wooden initial also comes with a set of 1-25 silver star tags, just in case you want to specify certain gifts on certain days.
Our personalised wooden advent calendar is approximately 56cm x 38cm but will vary slightly depending on the letter chosen.
These gorgeous wooden initials are laser cut from sustainably sourced 6mm cherry veneer wood and sent to you packaged in a recycled cardboard wrap.
