13. Ireland – Holly Wreath 14. Russia – “Faberge” Egg 15. Finland – Straw Star 16. France – Felt Fish
17. Norway – Cut Heart 18. Spain – Pooping Log 19. Czech Republic – Golden Pig 20. Poland – Jeżyk
21. Austria – Krampus 22. Philippines – Paper Paról 23. Japan – Origami Swan 24. USA – Knit Elf

If I was going to use these ornaments in an advent calendar, I have a couple different ideas of how I would package them. My first idea is to put each ornament in an appropriate sized box and then number the boxes. Then pile the boxes up with one to be opened everyday.
My second thought is to put the ornaments in numbered bags and then hang the bags on a line by using clothespins or tying them on.

I think it would be fun to include a little information about Christmas in the country the ornament is from with each one.

I plan on being back next starting next June(!) with a new set of 24 ornaments.

    • Hi, I just wanted to say thankyou so much for the time and effort that went into these tutorials. I did this for my children for advent this year and they were really interested every day in what ornament came next.
