Fifteen years ago I made this DIY advent calendar. I liked it so much that I made five more to give to each member of my family. This is one of the most treasured Christmas decorations I own as it represents so many holiday memories of our family! And it is the perfect Christmas gift.
I love Advent calendars. Especially the ones I can make myself. This DIY advent calendar took me less than two hours to make!

I am finally making progress decorating our home for Christmas. My theme for this year’s decor is a red and white farmhouse Christmas. I am excited to incorporate a combination of purchased decorations as well as a lot of homemade DIY Christmas decorations. So you can imagine how thrilled I am to partner with JOANN and I am so happy with the result. Their holiday greens are amazing and the three DIY Christmas projects were so much fun.
Remember when I was in Taipei in August and I panicked when I saw all of the pumpkin décor on Instagram? All of the beautiful homes on IG had at least ten pumpkins in every room. Sadly, at that time, my fall décor consisted of a ten-year-old plastic jack-o-lantern and one really big spider. So I frantically ordered a gazillion pumpkins online.
Pinterest is such a great place for DIY ideas. Especially when it comes to Christmas projects. I recently saw this paper Magnolia wreath that was made by Seeking Lavender Lane. I loved the look of it so I decided to make my own using a scrapbook paper instead. It’s an easy DIY and I think you should try it!
