Advent Calendar Ideas
Advent Calendar – Best Ideas from Around the Web
There are so many creative ways to commemorate Advent. Here are some clever, pretty, and fun DIY Advent calendars from around the web.
I discovered a yarn-wrapped wreath with clothes-pinned envelopes from Dandee Designs. How sweet. Each envelope corresponds to a date and contains a card labeled with a family-friendly activity (e.g., take a drive to see the Christmas lights).
Next, the bloggers at Stampez have repurposed a muffin tin. This looks like something you could make with the kids for a fun family project.
I love this next idea. It is a shoe organizer-turned-calendar from Eighteen25.
And for my final DIY, how about some felted fun from blogger Katie M. Rich? This is so pretty and something I could see using year after year.
If you’re feeling less crafty and more spend-y, these adorable semi-DIY calendars are available on etsy:
- Tisa’s Creations offers a semi-handmade kit with glittered clothespins and gift bags you can fill with goodies.
- Little Cute One is selling a pattern for a felt tree calendar.
- Bead Shack has made an adorable Advent calendar box with hand painted drawers. Just add treats!
Ok, I couldn’t resist. Here’s one last DIY. I especially love this idea where numbered bags containing tree ornaments hang from the mantle. Each night, a new ornament is hung on the tree.
What a lovely tradition to start with your loved ones! How does your family count the days until Christmas?
