DIY Advent Calendar


December 1, 2013 by Jenn


It’s about that time to start counting down to Christmas! This year I decided to make an entire wall my advent calendar. It’s really easy and inexpensive too. Here’s what you’ll need:

- 25 pages from any old book you don’t care for anymore
- clothespins
- gold pray paint
- sharpies
- white paper
- twine


First you’ll need to spray paint your clothes pins.


Next draw numbers 1 through 25, one number on each page.


Next comes the fun part, decide on 24 fun holiday ideas to do during december. Ours included buying a tree, decorating it, watching Elf, making hot chocolate from scratch, putting lights on the house, and making CHristmas cookies. Once you have your ideas, write them onto the white paper. I used double stick tape to attach the white paper to the book pages.


The last step is to find a good spot in your home and hang the twine. Clip the numbered pages onto the twine with the gold clothespins. Everyday turn over the corresponding number and enjoy that holiday activity.


Start the countdown!
