There are lots of different ways to count down to Christmas - one of the most fun is the Advent calendar, which has little doors to open each of the days between December 1 and Christmas Eve.

Here's a holiday calendar with a difference - it has three sides, looks like a tree, and it has a special treat in store every day. Why not make one as a surprise for your family and friends this Christmas?

You will need:
Thin cardboard
24 tiny treats (candies, small toys, costume jewelry, pencil sharpeners, erasers)
Cellophane tape
Needle and thread
