Item details

This listing is for a PDF pattern you print at home, not the actual product.


Advent calendars are a great way for children to keep track of how many days before Christmas there are. Each day, starting December 1st, an ornament is taken out of one of the pockets and placed on the tree until all 24 are put up – then the next day is Christmas!

-7 ornament patterns: star, snowflake, cardinal bird, bulb, peppermint candy, silver bell, and holly
-Ornaments hang from buttons on the tree
-24 pockets for 24 ornaments
-A fun "hands-on" tradition that can last for many years
-Easy to hang and store
-Finished measurements are 18"-wide by 32"-tall
-Totally cute!

*I have included 10 bonus ornament patterns (please note instructions for these aren't included): lightbulb, baby Jesus, Gingerbread Man, candy cane, Angel, mitten, hot chocolate, Santa hat, Snowman and Christmas stocking

From start to finish, including cutting your materials, you can have one of these in less than 5 hours!

Made this and love it! I used canvas instead of felt for the background and numbered pockets and it worked well.
