Christmas Countdown Calendar

I'm a little behind on my Christmas crafts, so far in fact I bought all the supplies for this craft last November and didn't get around to it.
 I was flipping through Joann online and I saw these countdown calenders and I thought it would be perfect for Advent. I nabbed one for each of my girls as well as some Christmas scrapbook paper.
I was trying to figure out the best way to number the drawers when I opened the package and DUH! it comes with the sticks to number the drawers.
 I just measured one of the boxes then cut the paper just smaller. For the finger hole I used a 1 inch circle paper punch and cut a half circle at the top of each. I mod podged the paper onto each drawer, let it dry, placed the number sticker on, then mod podged over the sticker as well.
The girls are so excited for December 1st so they can start opening the drawers and stop peeking through the finger holes. 

Linking up at:


  1. Great find! I've been trying to come up with some kind of advent calender recently. I love that you made one for each of your girls too. So fun!

    1. Thanks! Make 2 was more out of necessity. They are 3 and 5. Sharing isn't really something they do on purpose. lol

  2. Wow, this is a great project. I think it's great that each of your kids has their own...brilliant! I'm hosting a homemade holiday party with prizes and I think this would be a great project to link up. I'd love for you to stop by.

    Have a wonderful day!
