Mum's Advent Countdown Calendar

Last year the Christmas countdown was in snowflakes (see the posts in December 2011) and this year I thought I'd do Christmas trees.

You can find out how to make them here. They're very easy. Like last year I will make one a day and at Christmas I shall make them into a garland so I shall have

a Snowflake garland

and at the end of December a

Christmas Tree garland.

You can join me in making one tree a day if you wish as an Advent countdown to Christmas. (What about it Jill?). They are very easy to make and take no time at all. The trees can be any colour you want but I'm going to keep mine green. I'll 'hide' a tree in my posts in December. See if you can spot them.

Next year I think I'll crochet Snowmen. DD has said that she'd like a crocheted snowman. More time is needed in each day, I think. I'll show you my tree granny square in another post. I'm half way through my Christmas blanket now. It may be finished by Christmas, maybe not.


  1. What a lovely idea, as a countdown to Christmas, I think I might join in if that's okay thank you xx

  2. Love the snowflakes, can't crochet though :(

  3. I would love to be able to join in, but I don't think my crochet is quite up to it! Hopefully next year!

  4. If you ever find out how to make more hours in a day, please let me know. I love the snowflake garland, I'm sure the tree one will look just as lovely.

  5. Bother! I can't crochet :( I'd join you if I could :)

  6. What a sweet idea! Cheers Judy xx

  7. I will have a go and what a great idea. And to make more hours in the day stay up longer, that is how I do it, not a great solution but as they say every little bit helps x

  8. T think I shall try making one of these - they are so cute:-)

  9. This is such a lovely idea, sadly I only found your blog today, but if I get going quickly I might just catch up.
