You may only have 2 days to go until those advent calendar need to be hung, but it's not to late to get one started.

  2. This idea of paper bags & balsa wood from burlap + blue gets 10/10 for simplicity.
  3. Wants and Wishes printable Advent present boxes.
  4. Cone Advent tutorial on the Callaloo Soup Blog
  5. Canadian Living gives you the template for this paper stocking Advent
  6. A fabric Advent tutorial by Skip to my Lou
  7. Love the idea of mix 'n' matching cotton fabric bags. This Advent calendar is by Designer Leg .DK

With #1 - even though you wouldn't have time to crochet all of those pockets, you could use thrifted sweaters/jumpers or even just squares of material...

Love your list :)

These are beautiful, and so inspiring! I think I'll have to wait till next year though. This year I'll stick with recycling the old paper calendars with the picture windows.
