Christmas Advent Calendar and Type Font Drawer

It's that time of year's crafty Christmas time!

Jenny and I grew up on Advent Calendars during Christmas when we were little. Ours came from the store and the candy tasted terrible! But, it was always exciting to get our Advent Calendar in the mail from our grandmother!

This year I decided to make my own little advent calendar with candy! A few weeks ago we went to the Country Living Fair in Atlanta and I found a vintage Type Font Drawer. I knew I wanted to use that for my homemade advent calendar.

After looking on Pinterest for advent ideas I found a really cute blog for free printables! Oh Happy Day has the cutest ideas, along with all kinds of free printables. I chose the flags for my Advent Numbers, but she has multiple other advent printables available. 

Print the numbers out, cut and use double sided tape to apply the numbers on the type font drawer (or whatever you are using).

Under the numbers place a piece of candy (my favorite is the Hershey Kiss Candy Cane Kisses!)

I also made a banner for my advent calender that just says "Christmas" but..."25 Days" would make a cute banner too!

Here is the finished product...

 I just used things around my house, so this cost me nothing! I think my Advent Calender turned out pretty cute. Now, go be creative with things around your house and make your Advent Calendar! 

Merry Christmas
