How to make your own Ombar Advent Calendar

It’s Christmas! Which means it's time for advent calendars...

We've been so busy making chocolate this year that we haven't time to make an advent calendar to sell. So instead we decided to get our ‘Christmas Craft’ on and make our own homemade advent calendar! We've put together a quick 'how-to' guide and provided you with a printable PDF so you can get crafty and make your own Ombar Advent Calendar too. Happy crafting!

What you will need:

What you will need

  • ‘Ombar Advent Calendar.PDF’ printed (available here)
  • String (at least 2 meters)
  • 25 x wooden pegs
  • 25 x 35g Ombars
  • Double-sided tape or glue stick
  • Scissors

Step 1:

Print out your ‘Ombar Advent Calendar.PDF’ available here. Cut out each pocket around the outside line. You should end up with 25 individually numbered pockets.

Step 2:

For each pocket fold in the 3 wings, along the 3 inside lines.

Step 3:

Place an Ombar inside the folded wings and use either double sided tape or a glue stick to seal the pocket. Repeat for all 25 pockets. 

 

Step 4:  

Attach your string so that the pegs can be hung off the line. You can do this in any way you like, really. It can be hung in a straight line between objects, hung on a pin board, or we opted for a curvy shape and secured our string to a background poster.

 

Step 5:

Use the wooden pegs to attach the pockets to the line and pop in your Ombars!

Merry Christmas, Everyone!
