How to Make an Advent Wreath

(Disclosure) This post may contain affiliate links, thank you for your support.

Hello, I hope that you had a lovely Thanksgiving.
Today I want to share with you this year's Advent wreath.

Advent begins this Sunday, and each year I share with you the process of how I made my wreath so that you may be inspired to make your own.   

"Customarily the Advent Wreath is constructed of a circle of evergreen branches into which are inserted four candles (Advent candles). According to tradition, three of the candles are violet and the fourth one is a rose. However, four violet or white candles (Advent Candles) may also be used".
The rose candle is lit the third Sunday of Advent, for this color anticipates and symbolizes the Christmas joy announced in the first word of the Entrance Antiphon: "Rejoice" (Latin, Gaudete). For this reason, the Third Sunday is also called Gaudete Sunday. 

Last year I used natural elements for our Advent Wreath.
In past posts, I have mentioned that I use whatever 
I have on hand at the moment, so with that said
here are the supplies that I used for today's wreath.
  • Four to five artificial pine needle branches 
  • Deer moss 
  • Floral wire 
  • Scissors
  • A decorative branch
  • Candle base
  • Four Advent candles

1 . The first thing I did was to tie each branch to the other using the
floral wire and bend each one to form a circle. I adjusted the diameter of my wreath so that it could fit around my candle holder. The branches are made of wire, so it was not difficult to form them into a circle.

2. I then added the large candle base to the center of the wreath.

3. Next, I placed the deer moss on the top of the candle holder to give
coverage to leave some space for the four candles.

4. After adding the moss, I placed the candles around the base.

5. The last step was to add my decorative piece, the pine cones, and log branch.
That's it, create a wreath and then just put everything else into place.

There you have it, our Advent Wreath this year.
Happy Advent!
