5 Easy DIY Advent Calendars

I’ve gone and done it again! Every year I promise myself I will start early and create an advent calendar well before December first. But, here we are, closing out November and I’m scrambling! With just a few days left, I’ve gathered up some of my favorite simple, beautiful DIY advent calendars that we can whip up in no time.

Easy DIY Advent Calendars

Much like my Essential Holiday Gift Guide, I chose simple advent calendars that are a little bit modern, minimal, and neutral. This makes them easy to incorporate into any home!  Looking for more Christmas decor ideas? Check out my Tiny Wreath Ornaments and my Modern Hoop Wreath DIY – both super simple and easy Christmas DIYs.

This advent calendar uses tiny muslin bags and vintage sifters which makes this an extra easy and pretty DIY.

To make this one a little less farmhouse, I might use a woven basket tray instead!
