MJ’S Merry Advent Calendar Crochet Along
This Homemade Advent calendar comprises 6 patterns that are so easy to crochet! For the Crochet Along we will crochet 3 different mitten patterns and 3 different stocking patterns. You will need to make 4 of each to fill the advent calendar. You can realistically crochet 2 per night to complete them by December 1st!
The DIY Advent calendar is so easy to make and put together. This is a great activity to do with your family. I used chocolates, but you can customize the treats to whatever you prefer. The Mittens and stockings are large enough to hold several small items!
DIY Advent Tree Ladder
Make a Rustic DIY Tree ladder to display crocheted stockings and mittens. A tree ladder is a fun and festive way to display an advent calendar. You could also show mittens and stockings on a beaded garland or a large picture frame with twine. Make your tree ladder by following this tutorial or purchase a pre-made tree from Amazon.
Approximately 120″ of twine
Hand saw to cut sticks (optional)
Collect 7 sticks approximately .5-.75″ in diameter. Cut sticks to each of the following measurements;
4″, 6″, 9″, 12″, 15″, 19″ and 24″.
Begin with the largest stick working to the smallest stick. Knot the twine around the stick and wrap the twine around one more time. Leave approximately 5″ of spacing between each stick, and wrap the twine around the next stick 2 times, repeating for each additional stick. Wrap the twine 2 times around the base of the star leaving approximately 3″ between the last stick and star. Repeat for the other side. Use a glue gun to glue the twine to the wrong side of the tree ladder to keep the twine in place. Tie a piece of twine to the top of the star to hang.
Use wooden numbers with ties to attach mittens and stockings to the tree.
Add mittens and stockings to each space as follows; 1, 2, 3, 4, 4, 5, 5.
DIY Star Video Tutorial
Star topper for your Merry Advent Calander. As another option, you could also wrap the star in twine or yarn to secure the edges if you need to.
