This advent calendar was made by stretching and stapling a spare piece of fabric over an old paint canvas. The pouches were made from felt using a simple whip stitch and secured to the canvas with hot glue. The numbered dates were stitched. A variety of old buttons were hot glued on the pouches for decorative purposes.
A small gift can be placed into each pouch. A simple and thrifty alternative to more expensive advent calendars out there.

Thrifty it is! I like this idea. The kids might even help while making the calendar by adding Christmas stickers to the pockets. Letting them use fabric markers to decorate might also be a fun way to let them make this their calendar.
