Mostly in the form of Advent calendars, there are tons of creative ideas for countdown-oriented Christmas decorations. We love the compartmentalization of each of these, from crafty to glamorous:
• 1 Advent chest of drawers at Amish Loft
• 2 matchbox Advent calendar from Country Living
• 3 a minimalist version you can embellish on your own by Karen Foster Design, available through Amazon
• 4 This mirrored advent calendar from Target is unfortunately out of stock, but it's sooo much cooler than the mirrored one that is in stock. Go figure.
• 5 Modern Cottage's DIY'ed crafty advent calendar.
