I wanted to add a 3D tree at the top of the pyramid but I had not enough green paper to craft it as big as I wanted ! 🙁

I glued the paper boxes I had made several days ago on a golden cardboard circle, beginning with eight of them. (I used a bowl to help me…)

Then, I glued the bottom of seven other boxes on the first floor, and five above…

Then 3 boxes, and the latest… It only remained to write numbers with a golden felt pen.

I filled each box with chocolates… of course 😉

And now, my Advent calendar will decorate the table for at least 24 days ! 🙂
