Count down the days to Christmas with these fun DIY Cricut advent calendars! Each of these Christmas advent calendars is made using your Cricut Explore, Cricut Maker, or Cricut Joy—so many festive and fun ideas for your family!
Raise your hand if you have fond memories of paper advent calendars! Every morning, you excitedly open up the tiny paper door and devour a little piece of waxy chocolate in the shape of a teddy bear or a rocking horse or maybe even a candle. Ah, memories! It’s true, Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year for a reason and it’s so fun to count down the days, especially as a child!
I love putting my own special spin on childhood traditions and I get excited to create new traditions with my little family. My boys are getting old enough that they are remembering the holidays and the different ways we celebrate, so I’m all about making new traditions. And any anytime I can bring a DIY project into the celebration, even better! You can bet we are counting down the days until Christmas this year, but we are leaving the waxy chocolate at the store.
I’d like to encourage you to get crafty this Christmas, and your Cricut can help! This collection of more than 20 DIY Advent Calendar ideas has projects for every family. You can use your Cricut Maker, Joy, or Explore to create your calendar and those special memories for your family. Christmas comes once a year—why not start a new tradition that will last for many years!
I’ve broken these out by type of materials so you can find a Cricut Christmas countdown you’re excited to make!

I cannot find the design space file for the first advent houses pockets you call it “pocket advent calendar”. I have the monthly subscription to Cricut access. I still cannot find the file. I saw the other comments, with your reply and tried those links to no avail. Can you send me the house dimensions and the roofs. Or where I can access the cutting pattern. Thank you. Love it. Donna
