An Easy DIY Advent Calendar

With December just a week away, I am in full swing to find the best advent calendar to make. I love to make them each year instead of buying them. That way I can fill them with goodies I know my daughter will like, and also I can make it a little healthier instead of filling it with candy.

Here is an easy DIY advent calendar that I made last year. (It also makes a cute wall hanging for the holiday season!)
