Advents Calender Ideas

**All images in this post are from Google Images. I take no credit.**


This post is about making your own advents calender which you can reuse year after year. I know it's a bit late for this year, but you can make them to start using next year and they make great presents.

Idea No.1
You know what bunting is, that stuff which people hang up on festive occasions? 
 Well, this idea is for a bunting advents calender!
To make it, follow these steps:
  • Cut out 48 triangles of fabric in festive colours, such as red, green, golden, etc. 
  • So them together, leaving the top of the triangle open. If you have done sewing before, you will know to sew on the backside of the fabric and then turn it inside-out when you're done.
  • Overstitch the top edge so it doesn't fray. 
  • With a fabric pen, write on each triangle a number from 1 to 24.
  • Sew the triangles onto a string, and hang it up.
  • You're done!
In each of the triangles you can put a small present like a bead, a sweet, or something like that.

 Idea No.2

Do you have lots of clothes left over from when you and your siblings were little? What about socks?
This idea is to make an advents calender out of old baby socks! Just follow the steps...

  • Collect 24 old socks, and make sure they're clean. 
  • Write a number on each of them with a fabric pen if you want. 
  • Sew them onto string, and hang it up. 
  • You're done!
You can put a bead or a sweet or something in each of the socks.

Good luck making!



  1. That sounds nice! I used to be able to sew, but I'm not very good at that anymore.
