Neon Ribbon Advent Calendar

I love advent calendars. My family does one every year. I fill each box with a toy or treat and a Christmas tradition. It helps us slow down and enjoy the season. Today we’re sharing a neon ribbon advent calendar. I love the modern twist on traditional colors. We attached it to the wall in the shape of a tree with double sided removable wall tape. Every year in November I place a big order to Paper Mart to stock up on ribbon before the holiday season. My favorite is the Double Faced Satin, it’s thick and luxurious.

    What a cute, fresh and practical advent calendar, I love it. I’m amazed by the variety of shapes and decor advent calendar can have.

    I made mine yesterday and it’s so different while function is exactly the same – you can see it on my blog. Thanks for those great calendars you present this year.

    Cute! Do you have any suggestions for the inside of the boxes? I can’t think of much that would fit in those tiny boxes. Do you repeat a lot of the little gifts (like there are stickers in 3 or 4 of them)?

    This is so much sweeter than a store bought advent calendar!

    Love this! Love the introduction of neon for a brighter Christmas feel without the traditional red and green! x
