The countdown is on!

Sorry, I know December has already begun, so this isn't the timeliest post. But one of the best parts about Christmas is the anticipation. And advent calendars help with the excitement. I finished this one yesterday (just in the nick of time). I got the idea here.

I probably should add block words "days til Christmas" on two more blocks like she did, so it makes more sense. I used sticker numbers, but you could use print-outs, die-cuts, etc.This is one my mom made me a few years ago. There are litte hooks around the wall hanging that you can move around numbered 1-24.And this is one you move the star down each day until the star is resting nicely above your stable.


  1. I love advent calendars! I like the one of the star moving down to the stable. Did you make it? I have one that I made for Kambria last year. She loves it.

  2. My dad cut out all of the stuff for the nativity one, and then we put them and together and decorated it. You should share the one you made last year!
