Burlap Advent

12 Days of Christmas

Day 6 of the 12 Days of Christmas! 

 I love advent calendars. Everyone remembers making paper chain link count downs in elementary school or perhaps getting the cardboard book advent with pop out window filled with chocolate candy. It’s amazing how exciting tearing off a paper chain link or opening a window was in the anticipation of Christmas Day.

Count down to Christmas this year with a DIY rustic advent calendar!

I used 3 repurposed frames found at thrift stores to create this advent calendar. Criss cross red string across the back of the frame using a staple gun to attach it.

The burlap bags used were found at Hobby Lobby for 50% off!

What would you stuff the bags with? My ideal advent calendar would be filled with sample size Sephora products 😉

DIY Christmas tree tags in various shades of green and red. Use clothes pins to attach the bags and tags to the frame. Advent calendar, Christmas, Holiday, burlap, wood frame, red, green, tree tags, pallet trees, paper banner, three frames, count down,

As the frames empty, repurpose it to hang Christmas cards or family pictures.

DIY Christmas trees out of old pallets or barn wood. I watched a Youtube tutorial to make mine.
