A huge list of advent calendar ideas! Plus a DIY for making your own advent calendar.

Growing up, we never did an advent calendar. I don’t think I even knew what one was until I was older?

But at some point, I started seeing them and thought it was a cool idea to have a countdown to Christmas with a little present or holiday prompt each day. And then when I had a child of my own, I was like ‘oh I’m totally doing that’!

So I put together a big list of advent calendar ideas, from activity ideas to gift ideas, even a Christmas book list if you want to go the advent book route instead. AND I have a quick tutorial for how you can recreate the DIIY advent calendar I made for my little on this year.

3 Unique (and Easy) DIY Ornament Ideas

By Brittni • Updated on 11/10/2023

How to make Christmas ornaments with paper and chipboard. Easy and so unique!

Each year, I make a couple new DIY holiday ornaments for Christmas to decorate the tree and give as gifts to friends and family. Sometimes I add them as gift toppers to make the package cuter and they serve as an extra gift that way too.

This year though, I may have gotten a little carried away. Because even though I already had plenty of ornaments, I couldn’t stop myself from making a few more. Honestly though, I’m so glad I did because the ornaments I’m sharing today are my favorites yet!

I used my Cricut Maker machine for all three ornaments. BUT you can also cut everything by hand using the included templates.
