Creating your own DIY christmas advent calendar is a fun way to get the entire family involved in the count down to Christmas day. The best part is that it will become a personalized piece that your family will cherish for years. Here are five great reasons you should create your own personalized tree advent calendar.
Reasons in favor of a Christmas advent calendar
1. It will save you money
Most of us are looking for ways to make the holiday a little less stressful on our bank accounts. Every penny saved truly does make a difference. Tree advent calendars can be expensive to purchase, especially since it is an item you will only use once a year. However, you can create your own DIY calendar for about half of what it costs to purchase one.
2. The Whole Family Can Participate
By creating your own advent calendar, the whole family can contribute to the project. It is a great way to set aside special time with children or family. Not only will they have fun helping create this personalized item, but it will make a lasting holiday memory they will always cherish.
3. It Will Match Your Holiday Theme Perfectly
Does your holiday decor have a specific theme? Another reason to make your own tree advent calendar is that you can purchase any material you like. You get to add your own touch of style and flare. As a result the finished product will match the rest of your holiday decor perfectly.
4. You Will Cherish It For Years To Come
Handmade items always carry more sentimental value than something that is factory made. Since you will be creating this piece yourself, it will symbolize much more to your family. Your DIY Tree Advent Calendar will become a treasure that can be passed down and cherished by others in the future.
5. It Can Be Completely Personalized
The best part about making your own Christmas advent calendar, is that you have the opportunity to personalize it. You can add family members names, or purchase trinkets that are special to you or each individual family member. No store bought product will be the same as the one you created specifically for your family.
