On November 28th, the first of four candles is lit. Here you can find inspiration for the self-made Advent wreath.

The 1st Advent (November 28th) is approaching. If you don’t have an Advent wreath yet, you should gradually start making things. After all, the traditional arrangement including the four candles is part of the pre-Christmas season. Anyone who has seen enough of the classic wreath will also find inspiration for new variants here.

This is how the classic version works

To tie the classic variant, you need a straw wreath, green wire, lots of fir green, four large candles, four candle holders and decorative elements. Everything is mostly available in the hardware store around the corner. Then separate small twigs from the fir green and attach to the wreath with the wire until everything is covered. A little skill is required for this. Attach the four candles to the holders and then put them in the wreath. There are no limits when it comes to decoration. Small Christmas balls, pine cones and ribbon can easily be attached with a hot glue gun.

Two in one

Why not combine a container and a wreath? If you own an open bowl in Scandinavian style, you can attach a little green to it with wire. In addition to fir branches, eucalyptus branches or dried flowers are also suitable. Tree holders are best suited for the candles, as they can be easily attached to the bowl with their clamps. The container can be filled with nuts, mandarins or gingerbread.

No more wax stains

The variant with preserving jars has two advantages: It’s quick and you no longer have to look for wax stains in the future. So that the whole thing doesn’t look too symmetrical, simply choose four candles in different sizes and place them in matching glasses. On a large plate, for example in gold or silver, and with Christmas decoration elements, the candles look much more festive. Art enthusiasts can also creatively paint or label the glasses.
