Made from an old soda crate, vintage paper, and bingo numbers, this vintage Christmas decor is perfect for counting down the days until the big day! This Crafty Coca Cola Advent Calendar is a unique way to show off your creativity to any holiday guests that may drop by. Recycled craft ideas are especially great during Christmastime when there seems to be so much waste.
