Countdown to Christmas

Great home made Advent Calendar ideas in 5 clicks!

Here are some great ideas to make a home made Advent calendar. Such a great idea instead of buying one that wont get used again!

Why not use some simple brown envelopes and decorate them in your favourite designs? The Mummy Diary shows us how, or at Craft and Creativity they suggest making little house shapes!

Empty toilet rolls make a fun calendar at The Craft Crow! There’s lots of other Advent Calendar ideas on their site too, from Lego to coffee filters!

Another idea is to make little printable activities to cut out and put into any advent calendar pockets. There some great free printables at Lauras Crafty Life.

Felt fans will love this lovely Nativity Advent from Cutesy Crafts! This link includes all the templates you’ll need.

So, are you inspired? We’d love to hear about your calendars…are you making a new one or do you already have an amazing home made one that comes out every year? Let us know! We have limited places left on our Quilted Advent Calendar workshop that’s taking place this Saturday 28th, so if you’d like to make this beautiful Christmas keepsake (shown at top), book here or give us a call on 00 353 49 95 27424.
