Advent calendar #2 uses empty matchboxes. This tutorial comes with printable templates for numbers and owls.

Advent calendar #3 can be easily created with branches and some paper bags. Just bring those string lights!

Forest creatures and the landscape made with recycled toilet paper rolls is the cutest idea ever! Advent calendar #4.

You can download the printable owl and the house to make your own advent calendar for the idea #5

 I love advent calendar #6! This needs some sewing skills and time but it's totally worth the effort. You can use it year after year and wash it before you store it after Christmas. For the entire tutorial visit the link above.

Last but not the least, advent calendar #7 is fun and a unique idea. Hoe cute are those tiny baskets!

Advent calendars are truly a fun way for kids to count down the 25 days leading up to Christmas. I hope you can find these festive calendar ideas inspiring and helpful to make your own countdown to Christmas. Hurry there is still time to make one!

Have a wonderful weekend my friends. I'll see you all on Monday with lots of owl finds that'll continue to make your day. I know they make mine! Till then you can join me on Facebook.

Turkey or owl? How about both? This are the most adorable Thanksgiving treat idea I have seen in a long time. Carrie has shared this recipe with which you can make tons of pretzel chips in owl and turkey shapes. Keeping only one simple thing in mind - "right side up turkeys and upside down owls!".
