An advent calendar is a special calendar to count down the 24 days in anticipation of Christmas. Starting on December 1 to the 24, each day in an advent calendar is celebrated with a small item, like candy, usually building up to bigger and more exciting prizes as you get closer to the much-anticipated holiday. While we’re all used to traditional versions, why not use this opportunity to create a DIY advent calendar for yourself or your loved ones filled with cannabis treats?
In this post, we will teach you how to make your very own cannabis advent calendar to add a bit of “spark” to this yearly tradition.
How to Craft Your Cannabis DIY Advent Calendar
First used by the German Lutherans in the 19th and 20th centuries, an advent calendar is traditionally used to await the birth of Jesus Christ. While the traditional version is still a fun and exciting way to count down the days to Christmas, you can make it even more interesting by creating a “greener” cannabis version.
Here’s how to do it.

There are many ways in which you can utilize what’s already available around the home, such as scrap fabric or jars.
