Here’s an easy homemade Advent calendar idea with hanging goody bags!
Try making this simple and inexpensive DIY Wooden Advent calendar by hanging little treat sacks with small clothespins! Each day during December, your family can look forward to opening a different gift bag. Fill the sacks with small toys, party favors, stickers, treats, written messages, or even acts of kindness.
Advent calendars are such a fun tradition, and this DIY project turned out so cute!
This DIY requires such simple craft supplies!
I found the numbered Recollections brand gift tags in-store at Michaels. If you can’t find them, blank gift tags will work too. Simply write each number out instead. I was able to purchase what I needed for around $15!
Here’s how I made my DIY wooden Advent Calendar in a frugal way…
I used a piece of scrap wood (a piece of beadboard that I already had in the garage). I painted it with a fresh coat of white paint for this project, then I glued the clothespins to the board. If you like this beadboard look, pick up a piece and have it cut to size at the hardware store, or even use a different wood – it’s up to you!
The top and bottom pieces of trim are thin pieces of poplar hobby board from the hardware store that I stained and glued to my board using Liquid Nails. I think it gives a more finished look, but this step is definitely optional.
Then, I just hung each bag and numbered tag to the board. The best part is that I can re-use this DIY wooden Advent calendar next year! I plan on leaning this against the wall in my kitchen next to my Christmas Tree or on my mantel, but you can add a picture hanger to the back and hang it up, too.
