While you all are wrapping up your Thanksgiving Day preparations I wanted to share with you guys some beautiful and creative advent calendars!

One of my favorite holiday memories from growing up is getting those little advent calendars where you punch out the paper and they have chocolates inside. I just loved opening each day all the way up until Christmas.

These advent calendars remind me of those good memories, but they are far more fabulous and even better, they are homemade!

  1. Love all of these! Are you going to make anything similar to one of these projects? I’d love to see how yours turns out if you end up making it! Someday when I have kids I want to make one that has a different activity in it each day – like bake cookies, or call Grandma, things like that! 🙂
