Advent Calendar Ideas.

Are your advent calendars ready for Monday morning? I used to love counting down the sleeps till Christmas morning when I was younger, and waking up to a little chocolate wasn’t bad either! If you’re looking for a good DIY project for the holidays and you have some time this weekend, here are a few of my favourite advent calendar designs…

Advent Calendars 2014.

This might just be the most adorable advent calendar I’ve ever seen. Made with 24 empty walnut shells and delicate glass bead detailing. So precious! [Sweet Paul Magazine]

Advent Calendars 2014.

I love this raw and rugged design. The numbers are stamped on thin sheet metal and each parcel is tied with thick twine. Very rustic and modern. [A Merry Mishap]

Advent Calendars 2014.

A very romantic idea: message in an ornament. Instead of chocolate or treats, each glass ornament is filled with a little love note, some sparkles and glitter, and a favour or date night idea. So clever! [My friend Tan of Squirrelly Minds]

This mini tree design is so simple and elegant. You can download and print a free template to make the labels so it would be really easy to put together. Sprinkle a little fake snow around the boxes and you’ve got yourself a winter wonderland! [Oh Happy Day]

This one reminds me of the one I had growing up. A simple handmade felt garland. I love the mismatched shapes and sizes. [Cirkus]
