12 DIY Advent Calendar Ideas

Hi All! It’s Taryn again from Design, Dining + Diapers! As we near the end of November it’s time to start thinking about Christmas (if you haven’t already). Eeek! How will you and your family be counting down the days this year? Do you have a special advent calendar that you use or do you make a new one each year? There are only a few weeks left to decide how you will be checking off the days this year so I thought I would help you out with some inspiration. Here are a few of my favorite DIY Advent Calendar Ideas. Each of them is unique in its own way from lighting a candle, to reading scripture and eating candy! There is something for everyone!
