I seem to have a short attention span when it comes to the method we use in our house to count down to Christmas. I’ve been through many over the years, never using the same one in exactly the same way for more than a couple of years. I’m working on yet another, but this might be my favorite yet. I’ll show it to you soon, but the only hint I’ll give right now is that it involves zippers. In the meantime, I’ll share a few others I’ve found. I might need to hang onto some of these for when I get that wandering eye again.
So many Christmas countdowns are meant for kids, so I think it’s great that The Dating Divas have come up with one to share with your spouse.
From My Feathered Nest made this clever countdown with beads that you move from one side to the other as the days pass.
Tell your kids they get to pop a balloon every day until Christmas AND there’s something inside and they’ll be all over this idea from The Gunny Sack.
The idea behind this calendar from CutesyCraftsBoutique on Etsy is that you add a piece to the scene at the top each day until its complete on Christmas.
This quick and easy idea from For My Love Of could hold any kind of ornaments or treats.
This idea from Better Homes and Gardens is so sweet. Each day you turn the number around to reveal a photo of a family member!
This advent clock from Michele Made Me is a unique take on a countdown.
This cone-shaped countdown from Spoonful would be easy to make and is great if you don’t have somewhere to hang a calendar.
This ornament boxes from Burlap and Denim look pretty waiting in the vase and can be moved right to the tree as they’re opened.
I don’t need to say anything about this quilt from Trillium Designs. So cute!
I’ve got to get back to work on my calendar!
