DIY Advent Calendar

First, let me start today by shouting happy, happy, happy birthday to this little man.

He’s not so little anymore! Our perfect Kingston is a whopping 5 years old today. He brings more personality, happiness, and everything wonderful to our household each and every day than I could have imagined. We celebrated him yesterday with loads of family and friends, and we’ll continue the festivities tonight!

Now back to decorating! So I know we haven’t even hit Thanksgiving yet, and I shouldn’t be talking about Christmas. However, this idea requires a little bit of pre-planning. Thus, I’m sharing it now. My husband and I have never owned an advent calendar. But I think it’s really fun for kiddos to have a countdown to Christmas, so I think this is the year I’m getting on it.

Last year, I saw this DIY version from Our Vintage Home Love. It’s adorable. While I won’t be cutting, staining, and mounting my own wood, I’m thinking of doing a version of this with burlap. If I do it, I’ll have to get going in the next week or so. Add it to the list!!
