I get bored easily. I like to find new ways to do things like traditional X-mas calender. December had already started and I didn't have a good idea for it. I was thinking that it would be great not to buy anything but still have surprising X-mas calender. I couldn't totally avoid buying new things. Actually my idea came after I had bought Dymo. But remember you don't have to buy it for this DIY X-mas calender - you can write the words even with basic pencil or what ever you have at your home.
We have these wooden cubes because I have another DIY on process. Or being truthful - I haven't even started yet, haha. The cube doesn't have to be clean and wooden, it can be what ever cube you find from your home or you can make it from cardboard box or from paper in origami style. The most important thing is what you write on it.
So this is how it goes. I decided that because we have been together about 10 years it's nice to go back a bit and remember the times we met and life together. I chose the words kiss, hug, memory, poem, dinner and my husband chose a word purple. The cube has 6 sides so only thing I had to do was to print with Dymo the words and glue them to the cube. Ready. And the rest is about your imagination and memories and acts. We have only one cube so every other day is his or my turn. These things goes to both directions so I think it works better with shared cube.
If you have kids and you are making DIY X-mas calender cubes for them you can choose things that you think are exciting and great with your children. Baking together, reading a fairy tale, going out and have ice cream - what ever you have in your mind and what works best in your family.
So the most important thing with this DIY is what happens when you use it. A good time with your beloved ones. I hope you find this worth to try! Now I'm a little bit late with this, I know - but maybe next year! And today I got the word dinner...so I guess, I know what I'm doing today, haha.
Have a lovely Sunday!
