Last year I decided to create an advent calendar for my mum. I tried to do this in the past multiple times but always failed after a few days. I didn’t fail last year and my mum loved her calendar so much that I wanted to create another one for her this year.
I was thinking about using the old calendar again until I went on Pinterest and found the cutest gift idea. This person created unicorns out of toilet rolls to put them on the table or to fill them with stuff to give them away as a present. I loved the idea and so I decided to make a calendar out of toilet roll.
I love unicorns, I think most of you know that. My mum knows that I love them and because of that we are constantly sending each other the unicorn emoji on WhatsApp. And after sending thousands of them my mum loves unicorns too. We even got a unicorn cushion and it’s the best thing ever.
I collected twenty-four toilet rolls over the weeks and decorated them until they looked like cute little unicorns. I had so much fun doing this and styled each unicorn a little different.
I knew straight-away what I wanted to put in this calendar. Of course I can only go for smaller things because a toilet roll doesn’t give much space to put things in it, but I am really happy with what I got. I only need 6 little things until the calendar is finished, but I still have a few days so it should be fine.
I can’t describe how excited I am to give this calendar to my mum. She doesn’t have a clue that I am doing a calendar again this year and I just can’t wait to see what she thinks of this one.
I didn’t want to show you everything I got my mum because I don’t want to ruin the surprise and accidentally show her the pictures of the things, but I am going to upload each present I got her on my Instagram account in December as a little advent-insta-calendar-thing, which I am really excited for.
As always let me know what you think of this DIY in the comments below.
