i dream of home-made christmas calendars

All so pretty! I am looking for inspiration for home-made Christmas calendars and have come across so many beautiful ideas from creative people. Some might recall that last year I crafted with miss A. a little bucket garland that ran down the stairs of our home – and our kids loved it (and even the husband commented that it looked nice…). Let’s see if we manage to choose and make something else this year!

Looking at these calendars one realises that simple ones can be really pretty too, and that many objects at home – starting from clothespins – can be used for quirky, cute calendars. It is so hard to choose from them…what would be your favourite and have you made a calendar of your own at some point?
