WHAT YOU NEED:
Envelope template : You can buy one cheaply online or you can download this one here (Envelope template) and cut your own out of cardboard.
Christmas paper, can either be craft paper, old wrapping paper or even Christmas paper out of magazines. I use a combination of all these.
Glue stick, scissors, & Christmas twine
Mini craft pegs.
Wooden coat Hanger.
Red spray paint
HOW TO MAKE:
Make your envelopes using the template and your Christmas paper. You will need 25 envelopes.
Stencil, draw or paint a number on each envelope 1 – 25.
Decide how you want to hang them. You can hang your envelopes in a rectangular shape or a Christmas tree shape. I spray painted an old wooden hanger red and then hung my envelopes from this using the craft pegs and twine. The advantage of using a hanger is that it is to hang your calendar anywhere and is easy to move.
You can of course just hang them on the string like bunting.
