Oh this is such a cute twist on the traditional advent calendar. Martha Stewart suggests you hand an advent calendar using baby socks. String then clothes-line style using a ribbon. Put a sticker on the sock for each day. Then just stuff a toy in the festive mini stocking. Voila! Super cute advent calendar. Now all those stray socks you accumulate actually have a purpose!
