Although this craft is intended to be a vibrant homemade Christmas countdown, you could easily just number the DIY paint chips in order and turn it into a regular calendar for any month of the year.

From the French blog Griottes, the advent calendar is made by dying small rectangular bits of paper, leaving a section at the top white and writing in a date. When counting down to Christmas Day, you can assign a meaning to each of the numbers so it is more than just a pretty bit of wall art too. This clever and adorable watercolor advent calendar is arranged in a pyramid shape, but you could experiment in this area as well without any added difficulty.
