Our annual Advent Calendar is one of my favorite things to make every year and helps our family get into the Christmas spirit. I've been making advent calendars since the boys were little and have shared them over the years (here and here and here). This year I was inspired to revisit our kraft box advent calendar that is my most blogged about and pinned DIY project to date.
This year I designed simple black and white number labels and printed them onto white sticker paper. I always love a good kraft and black & white combo.
The boxes are mounted on a white matte board which is affixed to the wall using mounting tape.
Inside each box is a slip of paper with a family activity on it or a special treat for the boys. For the larger goodies that don't fit inside the kraft boxes, I place them in a wooden box near the advent calendar. I love how excited the boys are each morning to open up a new box.
