The Nordic Tree felt advent calendar kit has a beautiful Christmas tree with lots of detailed ornaments to hang, with that Scandinavian touch.

Looking at the reviews on Amazon for the Bucilla advent calendars, most of the negative ones are from people who didn’t release they have to sew it up themselves. Find more Bucilla felt advent calendar kits on Etsy here.

An alternative to an advent calendar kit to sew is to create your own kit with an Advent Calendar Fabric Panel. Get some batting and binding and use the pre-printed fabric to create a special advent calendar.
