How many days until Christmas? Keep track with your own project!


Advent calendars are special calendars that count and celebrate the days before Christmas. Since the actual date of the start of Advent varies, people usually start the countdown on December 1.

With only three weeks to go before December, you can start visiting shops to get your own calendar. However, it would be extra special if you can create one on your own! Your finished project can be a staple piece in your home during the holidays. Here are a few ideas that you can try:
