Jamie has fond memories of her family’s advent calendar as a child. We love Christmas time and want our children to enjoy the holidays just as much as we did when we were little. So the other day when we were having a look through the pottery barn catalog, we came across this Tree Advent Calendar for $179 and we just had to have it. Lucky for us this was an easy build and for only about $50. Here’s how it went… Enjoy!
