One-Of-A-Kind Advent Calendar Ideas Your Family Will Love

11/30/2016 6:54 PM Comments Posted By admin user
November is ending in a few days. Hear the jingle bells ringing? Make your Christmas countdown a lot more fun and meaningful with unique advent calendar ideas!

The Advent calendar tradition dates back to the 1900s where Gerhard Lang is widely considered as the producer of the first printed commercial Advent calendar. Before Lang, German Protestants use chalks to mark doors or light candles to count the days until Christmas Eve finally arrives.

An Advent calendar is either a card or a poster with twenty-four tiny doors to be opened daily starting on the first day of December until Christmas Eve. Each small door reveals either a picture, a present, Bible verse, chocolate, etc. Today, many non-traditional Advent calendars are created.

To get inspiration and stir your creativity, see below list of one-of-a-kind Advent calendar ideas:


#1 Muffin Tins

Who would have thought muffin tins aren’t only for baking holiday muffins and cupcakes, right?

A 24-mini cupcake pan is perfect to represent the 24 days before Christmas Eve.

Fill the holes with a variety of knickknacks and cover them with the labels printed out on magnet sheets. It’s that easy!

#2 Jeans Pockets

Got a pile of worn-out jeans in your home?

Cut out 24 different jeans pockets to make up your 24-day Advent calendar. Find a linen sheet you can paste the pockets on. Then, use a stamp or paint to mark the numbers.

This Advent calendar craft from Exley is truly one of a kind.

#3 Matchboxes

Don’t throw empty matchboxes to the bin just yet!

Your empty matchboxes, when glued together, can create a cute and unique Advent calendar in the form of a miniature chest.

Fill the matchboxes with small notes and treats. These tiny boxes can also be removed and reversed to reveal an image.

#4 DIY Christmas Bulbs

Want an Advent calendar that can also pass as another holiday decoration?

This perky Advent calendar that also serves as an indoor and energy-saving “bulb” décor only needs a few paper cutting, folding, and gluing skills.

You can fill them with treats too.

#6 Felt Nativity Scene

What’s Christmas without Jesus Christ, the star of the Christmas story, right?

To relive and share the story of the first Christmas to your family, try making this Felt Nativity Advent Calendar.

#7 A Simple Wreath

Got nothing to do with the wreath you used for Thanksgiving? Turn it into an Advent calendar wreath.

Repurpose your former holiday’s wreath and add some Christmas tags and ribbons to transform it into an Advent calendar.

Don’t forget to write Christmas-related notes on the tags before inserting them into your wreath.

#8 Hexagon Favor Boxes

Do you consider yourself as a modernist who loves wood and metallic tints?

Oh Happy Day’s found a new way to make Advent calendars through paper hexagon boxes made from mini hexagon gold boxes, wood sticker paper, glue, and pink printables as labels.

It can even pass as an art piece.
