Count down the days until Christmas with a handmade Advent calendar that is both decorative and fun. Use holiday-inspired fabrics such as plaid and gingham to stitch up small Santa hats. Then fill the hats with sweet holiday treats and toys and attach a paper number charm to each one. Hang the hats from a suspended rope with clothespins and display in an open window. Your kids will love opening a different hat for each day of December.
