Quite a few years ago I made Advent countdowns (as pictured above) for each of my grown kids and their families. I found old frames at the thrift store and repainted them using crackle medium, then followed countdown instructions from Gooseberry Patch Christmas Book 6 to make the projects. You can read all about it here: Gooseberry Patch Advent Countdown.
Naturally, with my love for advent calendars and countdowns, I had to make a Pinterest board just for them. Here's the link:Advent Calendars and Christmas Countdowns.
If you're thinking you might like to make an advent calendar this year, it's time to start. So here are a few inspiring ideas!
Here's a Christmas countdown I had pinned and blogged about previously: A Fun and Different Advent Countdown What a neat idea!

Here's a look at just a few of my other favorite ideas:
This Toolbox Advent Calendar by Sassy Style looks like so much fun to decorate and fill.

Then there's a Wooden Chalkboard Countdown to Christmas by Brittany at Pretty Handy Girl.
This looks relatively simple, but it's a pretty and fun way to count down the days.
