I created this cute this Christmas Village using serving tray, some bottle brush Christmas trees and a cute Christmas Village type building complete with a battery operated tea light.

This is probably one of the easiest gifts to put together and perfect for those last minute gifts. Just grab a cute case and stuff it with some holiday magic from The New Jersey Lottery! 

DIY Christmas Advent Calendar with New Jersey Lottery Holiday Games

Advent calendars or Christmas countdown calendars are all the rage. I’ve seen an array of designs that count down the 25 Days of Christmas or even just the 12 days of Christmas. So you can totally get creative here and and do either. 

With Scratch-Off Tickets starting at just $1, you can create an Advent Calendar to fit your budget. This would be great for the older teens still living at home (remember 18 & older only) or some holiday fun for your spouse! 

I went with a 12 Days of Christmas theme on this one. To recreate this holiday design you’ll need:

  • 12 different Holiday Scratch-Off tickets from The New Jersey Lottery
  • String  or thick ribbon
  • Decorative Clips 
  • Bow for the top
  • Tape

Step 1: Take the ribbon and tape it to he wall in a tree pattern. 

Step 2: Stick a giant bow at the top

Step 3: Clip the Holiday Scratch-Offs throughout the tree design

Then each day, remove one from the “tree” and see of you’re a big winner! 

You can even make this as a gift for someone who may not live with you. For Step 1, just design it on a large piece of foam board, wood or even metal to make it portable! 


These fun and festive holiday Scratch-Offs can be found at any brick and mortar Lottery retailer like 7-eleven, Quick Check, WaWa and more.


Giving the gift of holiday Scratch-Offs is a simple and stress-free way to cross those gifts off your shopping list. Typically we celebrate Christmas Eve at my mom’s house and each year I bring a fun hostess gift for her hosting.

While this year’s celebration may not be happening, I still want to give her something to bring a smile to her face. So the Christmas Village gift will be for her. And next year she can use the pieces to decorate her Christmas Eve celebration.

For all my friends who’ve been there for me this year, I’m dropping off these little purses filled with some treats and the Holiday  Scratch Offs as a little Secret Santa type gift. I’ll make a special delivery to their house before Christmas to hopefully bring s smile to their faces.

Hopefully, I’ll make someone a lucky winner this holiday season! 


Don’t throw away those non-winning tickets! Join VIP Club where members enter eligible, non-winning Scratch-Offs into quarterly second chance drawings for a chance to be selected as one (1) of four-hundred (400) Quarter finalists who win a $250 prize and entry into the yearly Grand Prize Drawing for a chance to win one (1) of fifteen (15) prizes ranging from $10,000 up to $1,000,000.
