30 DIY Christmas Advent Calendars

I’ve never done an advent calendar or Christmas countdown, what kind of mother am I?! I finally made one and love it!  My kids will now know when Christmas is for themselves and will have fun taking turns moving the magnet!  We thought it’d be fun to gather all the 2012 advents we’ve seen in blogland so far and since it’s December 1st, what a great day to start your own family tradition!  We hope these 30 DIY Christmas Advent Calendars get you inspired to make your own!
