How to Make a DIY Candle Advent Christmas Village

DIY advents and Christmas villages are our very favorite projects to make at Christmas time, so it seemed like a no-brainer to combine the two. There are so many fun ways to countdown to the holiday and we love this one for its simplicity–just light a candle each night until Christmas!

The glow of these cuties is so cozy and inviting and the houses themselves couldn’t be sweeter. You’re going to love pulling this adorable village out year after year!

How do you make a DIY Advent Calendar?

Making this advent calendar is surprisingly simple! Once you have compiled all of the supplies and tools you need, it can be made and assembled in minutes! We used a craft cutter to cut the vinyl pieces to decorate our blocks but you could also paint or draw on the details of your houses. Then, just drill your holes and add candles!
