Advent Calendars

To me, advent calendars are associated with my time in Scandinavia. We didn’t do them growing up, but Denmark is all about counting down the days to Christmas and they do it so well. They have one custom of celebrating each Sunday prior to Christmas as well as a Christmas candle that you burn every day. I love them all!

But, I’m also all about the advent calendars that I’ve seen this year here too. There are all kinds: candy, toys, Lego (my son LOVES LEGO!) beauty, cute houses, you name it. I’m also including some of our favorite DIYs below too, because I think we have some pretty good ones if I do say so myself!

Here are some of my favorites from around the web:

I also thought this Hello Bargello advent calendar was so cool! Are you familiar with bargello? It’s such a beautiful technique and this advent is gorgeous!
