DIY Tea Advent Calendar

Hello! Yes, This blog’s first DIY Tutorial is an tea advent calendar using tea bags as per the name. Maybe you already guessed it since it was the subject of my my first article. And for the ones who don’t drink tea, the next DIY tuto is an advent calendar with coffee capsules. Like this, everyone is happy =).

Well, it is right that we are already the 3 ! Then, just drink 3 of them today ! Hahaha…haha… No ? Anyway…
