Free Printable Christmas Advent Calendar

Printable DIY Christmas Advent Calendar. Personalize each day before printing! Choose from Santa, Nativity or Star Wars themes. Fun Holiday Paper craft.

It’s Christmas Advent Calendar time! Because I’m a huge procrastinator, all of the Lego Advent calendars were sold out.  I made a trip to the mall and then called 7 stores… yes… all sold out! Who knew I should have bought them back in April? With the start of December upon us, I was forced to make my own.

With some pieces of scrapbook paper, I was very happy with my non-Lego version, plus I saved $50! These calendars are SUPER easy to make (oh and I mentioned cheap right?) and it’s not too late to make one yourself! They were so easy that I even made one for each kid. Take that procrastination!

Actually, they are even more easy for you, because I designed them for you! 

All you need to do is think of what little treats your kids will get each day. The free printable design is customizable, so you can either keep what I have typed, or re-type your own treats. As you can see below, my daughter is really into money, candy and crafts:-) So unless your kids are obsessed with quarters, you’ll probably want type your own. ha!

I printed the little treats on the back of scrapbook paper and the circles on sticker paper.

  1. This is great. I saved! It just took some time to load.

  2. Ashley Crosson says:

    I can;t get the download to work either. it says it cannot be opened. even after I saved it to my desktop. Thanks!

  3. I don’t understand how to put it together exactly? Can you explain it in more detail? I don’t understand how you stick the papers on the calendar? It looks like they are stuck on with the numbers but not sure. I was wondering if you could help me a bit more as I would like to do this did my kids this year. Can you use Christmas scrapbook paper instead of printing the prints? Thanks for your help and super cute things.

  4. I can't seem to get it opened and would like it. Can you email it? Thanks.

  5. I would like to make these Advent Calendars for my "grown" "kids", but it will not print. I reinstalled a new version of Adobe….HELP!
    thanks!! ann

    • So sorry you are having problems Ann. So you are able to download the file and open the PDF in Adobe Acrobat Reader, but it won’t print? I just tested it on my computer and it worked for me. Maybe try restarting your computer since you just installed a new version of Acrobat. I’m not sure why it won’t print for you, but prints for others. – Amy

    • I did download a new version of Adobe, but the calendar won’t download for me. Restarted the computer…no luck.

      • Ah, so it’s not downloading to your desktop? I thought you downloaded the PDF file, opened it and then it would not print. The file is several pages, so it might take a while to download depending on how fast your internet is. You can right click the link to download to a specific folder on your computer. It should say “save link as…” (Hold down your control key if using a Mac.)

        If this still does not work for you, I’m very sorry. Digital files are tricky because each computer and software people use are different. I wish I could be of more help:-)

      • Got it to download!! I right clicked and hit “saved target as” and saved it to my desktop, then opened it up. Very cute!!

  6. Deborah Werboweckjy says:

    could you please e-mail me this as I cannot download it no matter what I do. thanks my e-mail adress is

  7. le monde d'Is says:

    merci pour le partage de cette idée et des imprimables (et pour le site Star Wars : vous avez fait un heureux – lol !)…

  8. califbeachgal says:

    Hi Amy! Hubby and I start this one today! We have most of our supplies, he’s going to get the double-sided tape and then we will start making it together. Thank you so much for the printables!! They make a stressful time (I just got over Kidney Stones and have kidney probs.) and he’s going to be going in for surgery in Dec. (colon situation) so we needed to start early. Get in the spirit of Christmas when we are finding it so hard to do. Thank you!

  9. Angela Webb says:

    I tried to download the calendar from link – but its not working. Anyway the file can be emailed to me?? Thanks!!

    • You have to have the newest version of Adobe Acrobat. This happened to me, too, but after I updated my version it downloaded perfectly! Good luck!

  10. I made these advent calendars this year for my two oldest children. The turned out so beautiful and were really easy to put together. As you said, my son especially appreciated the Star Wars themed banner! Thanks for all you do. Your work is beautiful 🙂

  11. Thank you Amy for such a beautiful idea and design!!!! I made a Chinese version of scripture advent calendar out of it. You are amazing!! Please see my work here:

  12. Hi Amy!

    I know we’re 7 days into December but I dislike the advent calendar we currently have. I LOVE yours!! I’m having a difficult time downloading the calendar. I’m able to download other items from your site. Hoping you can help

    Thank you!

  58. Emily Brenner says:

    Thank you so much for sharing your amazing talent!! Also – just wanted to let peeps know… I was thinking all the advent goodies didn’t download for me either. I tried another browser, as suggested, but same result: I got instructions (but not the “good part.” hee!) However, just for kicks I went to print preview and to my delight… there it ALL was! So… I’m currently printing my advent calendar out right now. My boys will be so excited about Star Wars (lego sold out – boo on my procrastion) and we’re only 1 day behind. Not bad for me. Now… Cmas cards…

  59. I couldn’t get the download to work, either. Doesn’t make sense because I download plenty of your stuff (it’s all so fabulous!). Bummer.

  60. Sometimes procrastination is a good thing! These are super cute!!!

    Thank You so much! I am customizing the daily notes now! I will be using your advice/recommendations on pretty paper (since it’s nearly 2 a.m. and I’m nearly 20 minutes from the nearest 24-hour store that MIGHT have scrapbook paper).

    I wanted to have something like this ready to begin before now, but what can I say…I’m a super-busy home-schooling mom (who is wife to our Royal Ranger Outpost Sr. Commander, side-photography-business co-owner with same, and pursuer of Ph.D., whew, I’m tired! LOLOL) and I’m thrilled to be able to start tomorrow!!! =)

  66. I love your printable advent. It is adorable. We just did a tutorial for one using circular Christmas boxes. Check it out:

    Love your blog by the way!

  67. ooh never mind i just tried typing in it and it was just that easy!

  68. Love this thankyou so much!
    Just wondering how we can customize the advent activities on the computer? Can we upload it to photoshop and then retype what we want?

    Thanks again!

  69. super cute! Thanks for the download! I will pass along to my readers!

    hugs! Kim @ Party Frosting!

  70. Love it! RT @dsouth2001: @missfish We have our envelopes ready to go too! This would also be a cute way to do yr advent!

  71. RT @livinglocurto: #Free Printable Christmas Advent Calendar … there's even a Star Wars one!

  72. My husband and I are far from home this holiday season in rural Romania and even without sticker paper and 2″ punches, this was a completely do-able project with a printer, paper, and glue. Just finished a “grown up” version for us tonight. Thanks for sharing your idea (and the template.) ~V

  73. thanks for sharing this. This made a super easy project. I’m doing it slightly different by adding it to the pockets of our flannel Advent calendar. It adds just a little something extra to add to each day! thanx so much!

  74. I couldn’t get it to work! I have successfully downloaded from this site before! 🙁

  75. The advent calendar was only $34.95 full price– I got it back on October after last years success. But yours is SO MUCH better! I love it! LOVE LOVE LOVE!

  76. This is the cutest thing I’ve seen yet! You are amazing! And generous too boot! Very, very nice of you to share and hep those of us w/o a creative bone in our bodies out! Thank you so much! My children will love this!

  77. Woah!! Love this…thanks.

  87. This is FABULOUS! You’re such a rock star! 🙂

    You are the best and the most generous! I was able to track a Lego Advent Calendar at a toy store in San Antonio, but can’t go get it until this weekend. So I’ve been scrambling for what to do. You have just saved the day!

    Oh and not only did you include Star Wars, you included a clone trooper which is my son’s favorite.

    Thank you so much for your generosity and for being such a great Mom!

  89. You rock! Thank you 🙂

  90. LOVE this!! I still need to make tags for our calendar this year – I may just print these instead!

  91. L-O-V-E it! Can’t wait to print one for our house….we’re in the midst of potty training a 2 1/2 year old so I think I can coordinate the text fields with good-potty-day rewards! Thanks again for another awesome printable!!!
