DIY advent calendars

The countdown is almost here. After seeing a couple friends exchange advent calendars last year, I thought it was a super cute idea that I want to do this year. Whether you prefer working with with fabric, paper or already made tins and boxes, I gathered my favorite diy ideas to share. Some are just photos for inspiration and some are linked to tutorials. Good luck and let me know if you try one!
