This Christmas tree advent calendar combines many essential things people have come to associate with the holiday -- countdowns, candy, crafts and decorated trees -- all in one.

From Just a Girl Blog, the DIY Christmas tree advent calendar involves integrating the calendar right into the tree itself. So instead of hanging handmade decorations that don't serve a particular purpose other than enhancing the festive spirit or increasing nostalgia, these cute containers will hold small treats for children (and adults too).

This example used small white painted buckets, which are numbered with a small tag to indicate what day they should be gathered. You could try either filling them all at once or filling them individually.
