I don't know if this is the kind of thing you are looking for, but here is an advent calendar that I made.

I have an Advent project I made for my boys a few years ago. We put different things in the drawers each year, and they *love* it! I have a picture in my gallery and would be happy to send more if you wanted to see the other sides. I can see my mistakes in my pic, but my kids don't notice...they just enjoy the excitement of seeing what is in the box each day.

you can make an advent calendar out of a cookie sheet! I've not done one, though I've done cookie sheet calendars, but they are sooooooo pretty!

And EASY!

You spray paint a cookie sheet (either side, I like the back side because the markers you're not yet using can be stored on the opposite side since there will be a hollow area), then you can cover with pp as well, then you can use various things for the markers,,,,buttons, small flat Xmas ornaments, cut chipboard and cover them with pp,,,,etc,,,,

drill 2 holes in the top and thread with a ribbon,,,,

there are tons in the gallery, just search COOKIE SHEET ADVENT and a bunch come up!

I recommend a fast drying spray paint, because you will probably need to spray it about 2-3 times for full coverage without drips.

Here's my cookie sheet calendar, although it's not an advent calendar, it gives you an idea,,,,

check out Ronda Simpson's gallery--she has a really cute altered frame with a clip that holds the countdown numbers.
