Santa worship; ridiculously easy advent calendars made from everyday items.

Forgot the advent calendar? Well done, you’ve ruined Christmas. Now use that searing shame as your motivation to finish all the half-eaten condiments in the fridge, find the bloody Cellotape and rummage through your neighbours rubbish bins. Or just buy a pack of envelopes when you’re getting the newspaper.

 Here are our 10 favourite advent calendars, each one DIY-ed using household items. Tada! December 1st and you’ve already saved Christmas like some kind of freakishly jolly superhero.
