If you are looking for some fun and creative or religious advent ornaments, this post has so many great ideas! From felt advent ornaments and wooden advent calendars with ornaments to Jesse Tree advent ornaments and other religious advent ornaments, this post has an idea for everyone!
With Christmas coming closer with each passing day, I’m in planning mode. Big time. It is top of my to-do list to start making a fun 25 Days of Christmas Advent Calendar of activities and scriptures and things for us to do each day of December.
I’ve done this in the years’ past and always find our December is much more fun and exciting when we have a clear plan for what days we are going to do which activities.
Because, without a plan, we often don’t end up doing some of our favorite Christmas traditions, like setting up our children’s nativity set, reading children’s Christmas books that focus on the Savior, coloring nativity coloring pages, buying a new nativity Christmas ornament, dressing up in nativity costumes to act out the Christmas Story, setting up a Christmas tree, going Christmas caroling at a nursing home, doing some anonymous gifting, and so much more!!
Many people love doing fun advent calendars! There are about a million ways to do an advent calendar. I have shared multiple different types of advent calendars you can create or buy like toy advent calendars, nativity advent calendars, and several unique advent calendars. Each is different, serving different purposes.
I think those, most people have a simple advent calendar they reuse year after year that features advent ornaments or little drawers or other compartments. They pick out their own advent calendar fillers, gifts, treats, scriptures, or activities annually and individually and stuff them into each little drawer or write on the back of an advent ornament or something.
Today, I wanted to share some advent calendar ornament ideas with you! These ideas include advent ornaments to make each day leading up to Christmas, some are mini advent ornaments for an advent calendar displayed in your home, some are to be placed on your own regular Christmas tree. I tried to find ones that used a variety of different materials, from wood to felt to paper. I found several great paid version, and lots of great DIY homemade advent ornaments to make yourself or with your children.
I hope you’ll enjoy this list and find exactly what you are looking for so you can enjoy your countdown to Christmas!
