Someone asked me why I put up such easy-to-make Advent calenders. Well, it's because I don't want to have to go shopping and buy stuff to make one and who has time to work with completed ones. Besides, I like simple and quick. It makes my life easy.
Here's an Advent calendar from the french blog, clementinelamandarine, and it won't cost you a cent to make. Just recycle, a newspaper, pages from an old book, telephone directory to create it. The instructions are in French but the photos are so good that you won't need a translation.
But if you do, here's how:
Start by rolling a page to form a cone. NOTE: If you are using a newspaper, cut out the number of squares you will need in the size you want first. Glue the two outside corners to keep the cone in place, as shown in the photos by the black circles. Fill the cone with what you want and glue shut.
Go here for a really good tutorial all in pictures.
You still have a couple of weeks to finish it! Good luck!
