Does your family have an advent to count down the days until Christmas? I always love a good countdown! Of course, my kiddos love the treats that usually accompany it, but I also love an advent that incorporates opportunities for family bonding and service to others. If this is a tradition your family hasn’t started yet, today I am sharing five ways to make a DIY Christmas countdown. There’s still plenty of time to have one ready before December 1st rolls around!
This past week, I shared the stocking ladder advent that Jamison from Rogue Engineer made. Well, that was actually his second Pottery Barn knock off advent! Last year, he made this wood Christmas tree with adorable burlap sacks.
This advent uses mini buckets from the dollar store that have been spray painted and attached to a framed piece of plywood.
Are you more comfortable behind a sewing machine than a saw? Make your countdown on a pillow! What kiddos wouldn’t love moving the star each day?!?
I love this cubby shelf turned Christmas countdown because it is not tied down to an advent after the holidays. You can decorate the cubby shelves for each new season!
This felt Christmas tree countdown is kid-friendly and sure to become a treasured family heirloom!
