When it comes to Christmas, I’m rarely into red & green, and I’m almost NEVER into traditional. However, even though my children are grown now, I still love the idea of an advent calendar. The visual learner I am, I love an artsy Christmas countdown reminder! 

I started this wall calendar last year, as I was inspired to use remnants of a canvas paint dropcloth. But I only got as far as the pockets. Then my creative muse just vanished. Like that. So back into the closet it went. 

This year, I approached it with fresh eyes, and I decided to cut numbers out of fabric tape. Very rustic ones, mind you, so the project began to take on a Bohemian feel. I then added wooden dowels (for hanging presents).

Then I added the gifts, simply wrapped in tissue paper.

There you go. My grownup version of a funky advent calendar, with pockets large enough for bottles of wine.

  1. I love the simplicity of this advent calendar. Plus, it has bigger pockets so I could put multiple treats for each of my kids inside. Thank you for linking up your post at the #HomeMattersParty. We hope to have you join us again, the door is open Friday at midnight EST.
