Christmas is fast approaching and with just twelve days until the start of December I thought I had better start thinking about Advent Calendars for the girls.
In previous years I have brought the Playmobil Advent Calendar which is excellent and would highly recommend. Amelie absolutely loved it. It is beautifully presented and if you are like us and Playmobil fans you can’t go wrong.
This year however I am thinking of making my own. Looking for inspiration I checked out pinterest. Here are a few of my favourites I came across.
I fell in love with this beautiful Reindeer by The Sugar House Shop. What a fab idea. For someone who is crafty I would love to make this. However time is fast running out and I just know that I would never finish it and it would be added to my ever growing pile of unfinished projects.
I am a huge fan of Purl Bee and have had my eye on this for ages. I love the way you pin the decorations onto the tree.
I love this simple but effective advent calendar by Willow Day. You could make an amazing Christmas scene with these. If you hop over to her website there is a template you can print off.
I think the little cardboard houses I found on babble would make for a beautiful advent calendar imagine it with little fairy lights intertwined with it. However how long it would survive in our house with the girls pulling at it would be anyone’s guess.
If I was making it for myself or someone older I would almost certainly go with the amazing walnut advent calendar by Sweet Paul – Oh how I love that magazine. I think it looks so sophisticated and just dam right gorgeous.
Finally I love this one by LA MASION DE LouLou. Again I like the simplicity and the cute little polar bears.
Which one do you like best? With all this inspiration I had best get a wiggle on with ours. You can check out all of the cool advent calanders I came across on my pinterest board.
