‘Round here handmade advent calendar ideas are it.
Either you make it yourself or you buy one made by another momma. 😉 You won’t see any little people advent calendars on the hearth. I don’t like store bought or mass produced because I don’t believe the love’s in it. I thought I’d share some of the favorites I’ve found.
Pink Suede Shoe has made these CUTE Christmas trees and she has a printable. They’d be beautiful on the nature table too….and used year round.
Oh, this one has a special place in my heart!! The felt, the simple hand embroidery and those wee little dangles! All Sorts Makery has made this one usable for year round use too. The same envelopes could be used for Valentines by dropping down to 14, replacing the dangles with hearts & cupids…yup.. I’m in love! 🙂
Nancy over at Felt House Adventures made these little homes and sewed them to their little “street” rick rack. If we lived on a street I’d make a “Street Advent Calendar”.
I wish she was still blogging but all the lovelies are still there to check out. This one…SUPER simple diy. eyehooks, wire/string/trim, little envelopes, ribbon and stickers. EASY!
I like the simplicity of Ashley’s advent calendar. The squares would be easy enough for little ones doing handwork and could be sewn quickly with straight stitches.
I LOVE this one. She gives all kinds of filler ideas on her post but what I love is how cheap this could be made. You could pick a frame up from Goodwill, spray paint it, glue on some boxes with paper covered tops, add the numbers using wooden numbers, stickers and such. You could make it classic Christmas red and green or a some of the teal, magenta and lime green I’ve seen everywhere the last bit.
