Make a Xmas decoration that will last for years with this free Advent Calendar pattern….
This cute advent calendar is a tree on fabric backing with little pockets and adorable ornaments to go in the pockets!
Each ornament is approximately 2-3 inches tall. The finished calendar is 20 x 35 inches.
There are three options for how to assemble the tree (a solid tree, layers or individual branches), and two options for the pockets (either 4 strips of 6 pockets, or 24 individual pockets).
You’ll need various scraps of a non-fraying fabric such as felt for the ornaments, plus 24 short strips of ribbon and 24 buttons. For the calendar, you’ll need one larger piece of non-fraying fabric 20 x 35 inches for the backing and approximately 15 x 20 inches for the tree. For hanging you will also need a 30 inch strip of ribbon or twine and a 24 inch long piece of dowel. Plus any trim or extra decoration you want to add!
You can either sew or glue every step so it’s a really great craft project to do with children.
Make the full calendar for a great heirloom Christmas decoration. Or you could just the ornaments for beautiful tree decorations!
The pattern is trim-free, and comes in A4 or US letter size. There is also an A0 format (pattern pieces only) in case you’d like to take it to a professional printer.
Serger/overlocker NOT required.
