15 Homemade Advent Calendar Ideas for Christmas

Homemade Christmas advent calendar by Giddy GiddyPulling for Some Christmas Fun

Giddy Giddy features this adorable advent calendar idea that she's begun to construct with her little ones -- and it comes complete with plenty of holiday surprises!

At first glance, this calendar may just look like some beautifully designed construction paper cutouts, but each card has its own "pull me" paper lever that reveals a funny addition to the pictures! For example: day one includes "A partridge in a hair tree," and day six includes a play on the old woman who lived in a shoe; sustainably, of course! Check out Giddy Giddy's full post for more gorgeous photography and message her for details on creating your own "push-and-pull" Christmas advent calendar.
