15 great DIY Advent Calendars. I love the tin can one, so easy and cheap to make! #advent #DIY #christmas

Christmas is right around the corner. I have found over the years that having an advent calendar for the kids to "mark" off each day until Christmas really helps cut down on their craziness before the holiday. It gives them a visual to see how long they have to go, and also gives them a little treat each day in anticipation for the big day! The problem is, store bought advent calendars are generally either expensive or really dinky, so I have been looking into DIY options. Check out the best ones I have found below.
