Festive Farmhouse Puppy Dog Advent Calendar DIY

7 Materials
30 Minutes

Kids shouldn’t be the only ones who enjoy a holiday countdown. Check out our DIY farmhouse puppy dog advent calendar for your furry child! It uses basic supplies and is fairly simple to make. Decorate yours however you wish! FREE PRINTABLE HERE!

*WE USED THESE: Plastic cups with lids (our printouts fit this exact cup and size)

All you need is a piece of foam poster board, a box, some small cups, glue gun and decor of choice. Don't forget the doggie treats and gift!

Cut out the advent calendar circles and tags using our free download (on our FULL website post. See link under first photo.)

The pdf should be printed on cardstock if possible.

Draw a bone shape on the foam board to fit the cutouts. Glue the 4 circles in place.

Cut out the bone and add a box in the center to hold the final gift for your puppy dog.

Glue the date circles onto the lids of your cups. (Links to what we used are in our full website post. Link is under first photo here._

Add treats in each cup and add a toy in the center box.

Put a lid on the box and decorate it however you wish.

We used burlap, some faux greenery and ribbon.

Attach the final tag.

Hang on your wall with command strips. Open one lid a day till Christmas. Last day open the box with the dog toy as a final gift. Ü REMEMBER: Many more photos, instructions and pdf download are on our full website post. craftyourhappiness.com
