Here is my husband's family advent calendar. We are lucky that we were the ones out of his 2 other siblings who got to keep it. It was (and is) a very cherished family heirloom made by his great Aunt. Because there is only one, I am going to try and make his sister and brother one for their family. It's made out of burlap and felt. I know making the base of it and pockets will be fairly simple but the ornaments are what will be hard. I think instead of making them by hand, I am going to try to find little tiny Christmas Ornaments in shapes like the one on the original advent to go on the tree instead.
I am open to ideas though!
