DIY Christmas advent calendars are always way too much fun to handle.
I grew up getting those dollar store chocolate advent calendars EVERY Christmas and I remember them being the most amazing thing ever invented. The best was when you missed one day and got TWO little chocolates that day instead. There is nothing funner (adding that word to Nikki’s Dictionary too) then the count down to Christmas Day!
These days, advent calendars are taking it to an entire new level and its putting my beloved dollar store chocolates to shame… just kidding mom!!! – but not really..
My goal this year was to create my very own, magical, crazy DIY Christmas advent calendar but when your fiancé has a broken hand, and doesn’t trust you with a wood saw… it makes it quite difficult. I sketched out this cute Christmas tree DIY advent calendar that I thought was so unique and exciting.. only to find it already on Pinterest – talk about heart shattering! So much for my “unique” and original design!
So instead of creating DIY Christmas advent calendars this year, I decided to make a round-up post of some amazing ones already out there. Some peoples creativity really strike me. It makes me so happy seeing people with talent, sharing it with the world through blogging. Thats why I love blogging so much. It is such an exciting outlet for all things homemade! I also love seeing people help other people through DIYs and step-by-step guides.
These DIY Christmas advent calendars are some of my favourite ones found on Pinterest. Pinterest is just loaded with DIY Christmas advent calendars!! These ones in my post are unique, fun and my shine my kind of Christmas spirit!
All these DIY Christmas advent calendars photos belong to their rightful owners (I do not take credit for any of these!). But I do take credit for taking the time to bring light to all these amazing creators!
So lets get to these DIY Christmas advent calendars!! I have quite a few to share!
