Valentine Advent Calendar

Hubby made this advent board for me for my Thanksgiving advent calendar and I wanted to use the board again, so I came up with this fun Valentine advent calendar.

I took plastic heart containers that I got from the dollar store added some fun Valentine stickers, added numbers, some were cut from my cricuit and some are stickers.

I punched two holes on top of the hearts to thread my ribbon through to hang on the advent board. I used pink and red hearts and used pink and red ribbon to match.

Filled each heart with candy, on February 1st we can start our little countdown to LOVE. I have three children, so I made sure to have three pieces of candy in each heart. I like having an advent for each kid so there isn't any issues of when it's their turn. Hopefully I can get two more done by Feb. 1st. If not then my bases are covered.

Found the "Love" and heart at a local store and added to the board which make it complete.


  1. OHHHHH-EEEMMMM-GEEEE!!! I couldn't love this more if I wanted to! Absolutely adorable!! Thanks for sharing!

  2. Such a adorable idea. My Grands would love it! I'm going to put it in a file for next year. We have a new one coming--hopefully tonight as it's the due date--and somehow I don't think I can get it ready while holding a sweet cuddly boy. :-)
