December has always been my very favorite time of the year filled with celebration not only for Christmas and a brand new year, but our family also celebrates three birthdays in December! So it's a very busy, yet exciting, time of year!

To help us countdown to Christmas, our family has always enjoyed having a Christmas countdown calendar. I was touched when last year my Mum handed down to me my very favorite countdown calendar she had kept from when we were kids (pictured above)! Now my kids are enjoying the tradition of counting down with my calendar.
I wanted to share with you a couple of other unique DIY Christmas countdown/advent calendars to help your family countdown the excitement of Christmas! I made these in my EllaBella Designs days to sell at the market and they were a huge hit!

Mini clipboard Christmas countdown calendar

These little clipboard countdowns are so cute and are perfect for hanging! Clip your favorite photo up and change out the number each day. You could also include an activity on the back of the cards for the perfect advent calendar!
