⭐ Get ready to live out your christmas cottagecore fantasy, because it's time to make some festive memories by constructing this Advent Calendar throughout December!⭐
This beautiful little house is the perfect desk top Advent Calendar for Christmas 2023! Every piece is made from sustainably sourced, 4mm maple wood, each featuring a charming little illustration of a family of bears and their festive scene!
Handdrawn, print and lasercut the wood myself, and am so so proud of this little calendar. The designs are printed using UV technology, which seals the ink and creates beautiful, vibrant colours that are durable and designed to last for years to come.
The base piece measures 15 x 14.5cm and has slots each marked with a printed number. Each piece's base is printed with the corresponding number, so the calendar is super easy to assemble; just slot the piece into the correct slot and it stands freely on it's own!
We recommend starting with the house walls first, popping them into the base and then popping the roof on! All pieces are sent in pop out sheets; please let a responsibly adult pop them to protect little hands.
Please note that this house calendar does not come with lights; I just prefer to display it with them inside! I would recommend LED wire lights as you can pop the battery box straight into the house, but you could also use LED tealights. Please do not use actual candles as this house is made of wood so is super flammable!
The calendar is sent out in a presentation box so that all the pieces can be kept neatly for years to come; no searching for missing pieces next Christmas! This fits inside a large letter box, meaning it can be posted straight through your door.
PLEASE NOTE: Although this advent calendar has been designed for all the family to enjoy, it is not to be used by children without adult supervision. Small pieces may be a choking hazard, and although maple is a strong wood, pieces should be treated with care to ensure they don't snap or scratch.
Please be aware that as wood is a natural product, each set will be totally individual and have a different grain to it. Depending on the depth of the grain, some pieces may have visible markings; this adds to the character of the piece!
Wood thickness can vary slightly from batch to batch, which may mean your calendar pieces have some wiggle room once slotted in to the base. Don't worry, they are designed not to fall over! They will still stand up straight and will be easy to disassemble ready for next Christmas. If any pieces are a little difficult to remove, just give them a gentle wiggle to ease them out of the slot.
How to take care of your Advent Calendar:
- If you need to clean any of the pieces, please wipe them down with a damp cloth.
- Submerging the pieces in water may cause the wood to swell and potentially split, so please don't expose the maple to excessive liquid!
- Place your advent calendar somewhere safe where pets and small children won't be able to get to it unsupervised.
- Some pieces have small details; to avoid the risk of snapping these, press them into the slots by the base, rather than the thinner sections.
- When you are ready to take your calendar down, store it back in the presentation box, separating the pieces into layers with the paper provided to avoid pieces scratching against each other.
