Step 1

To start, take your thrifted/vintage cassette holder and remove the back. Next, remove all of the vertical inserts, and then every other horizontal insert. After this, slide the vertical inserts back. Once done, nail the back side.

Step 2

Now, prepare the muslin bags. Grab your marker (or any pen you like) and start numbering the muslin bags from number 1 to 24. After this, insert anything you like into each bag, it could be some cash, candies, etc. Tie a knot on each string, then hang it into the slots where the horizontal inserts used to be. Your DIY advent calendar is now finished!
