When Matt and I still ran our blog, YoHo Disney, a few years ago, I wanted to make a fun Disney Christmas advent calendar for our kids that was on a budget and simple. I created printable Disney Character gift tags that could double as the advent calendar. I attached them to a thrifted art piece that I painted and added twine.
It turned out so cute, and the kids are over the moon excited about pulling a tag.
I found these chalkboard clips in the register bins at Michaels and wrote the numbers in a white chalk pen. I hot glued twine across the width of the painted art piece. (The clips are top-heavy and flip over when there aren’t any tags on them.)
I printed the tags on card stock, cut them out, punched a hole, and tied a decorative string to it. That’s all you have to do if you’re making them as gift tags. *Please note: these images aren’t mine.
For an advent calendar, write fun things on the back that you can do each day on your countdown to Christmas.
Here are some ideas to get you started:
- Watch Disney’s Once Upon a Christmas movie
- Read a Christmas Story
- Watch the movie Elf
- Make extra chocolaty hot cocoa and watch the movie Santa Clause
- Write a love note to someone in our family
- Tell everyone in your family something you love about them
- Make cookies
- Write a letter to Santa
- Make Mickey pancakes for breakfast
- Dance to Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree
Feel free to download these printable tags as my gift to you.
Be sure to tag us on social media when you make your own so that we can celebrate with you!
May you have a Very Merry Christmas!
