Not everyone wants Christmas decorations that are red and green and bursting with jolly Santas. If that sounds like you, this simple-to-make paper-bag advent calendar is a contemporary Christmas touch.

You will need

• black card
• white chalk
• assorted sweets and treats
• 24 small white paper bags
• 24 wooden clothes-pegs

How to make

Cut 24 small squares from the black card. Write the numbers 1 to 24 on each square with the chalk.

Pop a tiny gift, sweet, treat or even a written wish or joke into each paper bag.

Fold over the top of each paper bag and attach one of the black-card numbers with a clothes-peg.

Arrange the pegged paper bags on a side table or mantelpiece.
