Build-A-Scene Christmas Countdown Calendar PDF Pattern


Countdown to Christmas with this felt build-a-scene Christmas calendar. This PDF pattern contains templates and basic instructions to complete a Christmas countdown calendar that your family will love! You will create 24 figures that will be added one by one until the scene is completed on Christmas Eve.

Among other things, you will get to build a snowman, hang stockings on the fireplace, and put a star on the tree. Put Santa’s sleigh in the air on the last day to signal that he’s on his way! Stockings can be switched out with stars and/or snowflakes to make the right number for your family.

Calendar can be sewn completely by hand or combination of machine/hand sewing. Includes photos of the finished product and one page of BASIC instructions.
