DIY Advent Calendar/Wreath

This year’s Advent season begins Sunday,Nov.30th .  It’s not too late to make your own handmade advent calendar or wreath. What is your family’s favourite advent tradition? Calendar or wreath? These four ideas are my favourites. Simple, economical and fun for the whole family. I love incorporating traditions and spirit of the holiday season by lending more upcycle materials in wreaths and calendars. The ideas below can be personalized to include your own traditions too.

My thanks to the crafters of these wonderful advent creations and for sharing their ideas:

I’d love to hear your ideas. Share your favourite advent traditions in the comments below.

Tip~use locally handmade dripless beeswax candles like these made by Skagit Broom Works.   And local WA grown cranberries to fill the cups or jars.

Cheers, Chic Mona
