With Style and a Little Grace: DIY Advent Calendar

DIY Advent Calendar


Happy Tuesday y'all! It's a short week and I start my Thanksgiving Holiday tomorrow - I can't wait! I think this year is the earliest I have been in the holiday spirit and I am truly loving it - it just really feels like that special time of year. Anyone else?

Since we will be getting our tree this weekend and starting our Christmas decorating I wanted to go ahead and put up this super easy and fun DIY Advent Calendar. I haven't had an Advent calendar in years and I have been watching all of these fun Vlogmas videos on You-Tube recently -see my faves here and here - and they all have Advent calendars. It put me on the hunt to find the perfect easy and cheap DIY version. I saw several cute options on Pinterest and decided to do a paper bag style. I think I spent a total of $20 not including the candy/goodies to go inside. You might have some of the items you need on hand.

I found these adorable printables of the Christmas story to include in each bag with a special goodie. You can just add candy or maybe a fun Christmas surprise or gift. Spend as little or as much as you wish. This is great for families because I know kids will look forward to opening every single day and you can talk about the meaning of Christmas as well.

I do think I might want to add some stenciling or something additional to them - if I do I will definitely post an update. Let me know if you like this idea and might do something like this for your Christmas. 

Hope your having an amazing Thanksgiving week and as always thank y'all so much for reading!
