I'm a huge fan of advent calendars, and I think they can be used for way more than the countdown to Christmas. You can countdown any special occasion...a birthday, a wedding, or a baby's due date. Here are some of my faves, both products and DIYers.
Here is my new favorite! It looks like this adorable and simple countdown calendar is made from cans. I just love it! Found on Room Envy.
How cute and graphic is this advent calendar made from metal tins? Found on Twig & Thistle.
I was amazed the first time I saw this toilet paper tube calendar by Maya Made. So clever!
You can make your own embroidered felt calendar with the help of the Purl Bee.
