Oh, how I love Christmas wreaths. The possibilities on how you can design your own DIY advent wreath are ENDLESS. But what do they stand for? ‘The Advent Wreath, or Advent crown, is a Christian tradition that symbolizes the passage of the four weeks of Advent in the liturgical calendar of the Western church’, according to Wikipedia. It also states that many have a fifth candle as well, to light on Christmas eve or Christmas day and refer to it as the ‘Christ Candle’.
My Christmas wreath is so simple this year, that a toddler could take the work off of you (my little brother was a big help :)! Kids love to help out with crafts and I love to give them a chance to help. Stay tuned on how we did it!
What you need:
- Rectangle Wooden Box
- Green Floral Foam
- White Sand
- 4 White Candles (I got mine from IKEA)
- Pine Cones
- Fir Branches
- Wood Christmas Trees as fillers
Place the green floral foam in your wooden box, so you’ll have to add less white sand later on.
Fill the white sand over the green floral foam.
Part 3: Now place your candles in the sand and place the pine cones, fig branches and wooden Christmas trees where you’d like. I used 4 fig branches and 2-3 little fig stumps. Also, I had some snow tipped pine cones left which I used, as well as natural-looking ones.
What’s your advent wreath this year? xoxo
