2019 Advent Calendar

Its christmas time again and who doesn’t logve a good craft based advent countdown. Where I have found CAL advent calendar kits, this year December rolled around and I could not find any kits in stock anywhere! Faced with this conundrum I decided to pull together a searies of patterns to use as my own Advent Calendar. This is what I am sharing with you today.

Based around creating a nativity scene and christmas tree ornaments, this advent calendar has one or two small craft projects per day.E xcluding Mary, Joseph and Baby Jesus there are alternate options on nativity scene days for those who do not wish to make a nativity scene . One pattern I have not included in the nativity scene are the stars. This is because I am planning to use my nativity scene as ornaments on the christmas tree. However the stars would make a great addition if you are looking to have your own nativity set up.

Standard attachment for ornament for hanging on tree, where pattern does not include one.
A quick pattern for this is to chain 35 stitches. Slip stitch into first chain and fasten off. Sew in tails to the ornament you wish to hang.
