Advent Calendar Ideas

Sunday, July 24, 2011
An Advent Calendar is a special calendar that's used to countdown or celebrate the days of Advent in anticipation of Christmas. Many of these calendars take the form of a large rectangular card with "windows" of which there are often 24, one for each day in December leading up to Christmas Day. One is opened every day during Advent. Each window opens to reveal an image, a poem, or a portion of a story such as the Nativity of Jesus. Some calendars have a small gift concealed in each window such as a chocolate or candy item or a small toy.

I've searched for some Advent Calendar ideas to share and have found some very creative and unique ways to make them. 

I love this one! So cute!

This was a clever idea made from a shoe bag!

Hope these ideas gave you some creative inspiration.
