10 super-creative DIY advent calendars (one even includes pinatas!)

The holiday season is approaching at the speed of light, and it seems every year I find a really cute Christmas advent calendar that makes me want to get my craft on. The only problem is, I always think about it after it’s too late and we’re halfway into the month of December. So, this year I’m determined to make one early enough to use by December 1st! I found a TON of really great ideas and wanted to share my findings with you. These are just some of my favorites.
