Advent Calendars

I’m a huge fan of advent calendars, and I think they can be used for way more than the countdown to Christmas. You can countdown any special occasion…a birthday, a wedding, or a baby’s due date. Here are some of my faves, both products and DIYers.


Here is my new favorite! It looks like this adorable and simple countdown calendar is made from cans. I just love it! Found on Room Envy.


How cute and graphic is this advent calendar made from metal tins? Found on Twig & Thistle.

I was amazed the first time I saw this toilet paper tube calendar by Maya Made. So clever!

You can buy this lovely advent calendar at Pottery Barn. Found on Oh Happy Day.



This is one of my fave advent calendars of all time by Pickles…little gifts hanging from plastic rings. A child’s dream…snowing presents! Found via The Crafty Crow.


You can make your own embroidered felt calendar with the help of the Purl Bee.
