How to make your own beauty advent calendar and save yourself £80 – perfect for teens or beauty lovers | The Sun

IT’S every girl's dream to countdown the days to Christmas with a beauty advent calendar.

But with some of the best brands on the market charging over £100 – why not save yourself some money by making your own for under £20?

Chloe started her own deal club where she shares all the latest beauty and home deals with her followers and this homemade beauty advent is a real winner this Christmas if you’re on a tight budget. 

In her TikTok clip Chloe shares the frustration many Christmas shoppers experience, saying:  “These beauty calendars are insanely expensive.

“HobbyCraft are giving £5 vouchers when you download their app throughout October. And their calendars are actually a decent price. So you can end up getting this one completely free!”

“I’m way too impatient to wait for delivery so let’s choose a calendar in-store.

"So our goods are secured, I got £5 off – making it £11."

The wooden calendar needs a splash of colour to make it look more festive.

“Now it’s time for a bit of a make-over,” said Chloe.

“I got this brush set from the Works a while ago. 

“So I've not had to spend any money on paint which will help us to stick to our budget of buying the calendar and filling it with 24 beauty products for under £20.” 

If you haven’t any paints at home, you can always grab this set of 13 colours from HobbyCraft for just £4 to keep you within budget. 

Chloe painted her calendar using festive greens.

Gold and white stars and winter snow patterns decorate the boxes to complete the look.

Why not decorate yours in red and white to create that signature Santa look, or head over to Pinterest for some more inspiration. 

Once the wooden calendar has dried, it’s time for the fun part of filling up the calendar.
