Have a wonderful 1st of Advent!
If you still do not have an Advent wreath but would like one – here comes your post! :-)
I show you what Advent wreaths I am using this year. And yes, this year I have TWO! Last year we used an Advent “box”:

This year I made two – one for the kitchen where we eat and one for the living room. The basic idea for them is similar to the Adent box above. Here comes “wreath” number 1.
Cake pan Advent wreath:
1. Search for (old) cake pan.
2. Fill the pan with bird sand.
3. Put candles in there.
4. Put some nuts on top … or something else decorative that will cover the sand.
5. Light candles and admire your great work!
I have to admit though that this wreath was more a collaboration than my idea. I started out and did everything until step 3 and had left it at that. Then my kids decided that the nuts that we had collected that day would look good in the pan and just started to fill up the pan. I did not want to start a big fuzz so I decided to let them do it – I could change it later. But when they were done I loved so much what they had done that I just left it like that. :-)
And wreath number 2.

How do you like my untraditional Advent “wreaths”?
And what does your Advent wreath look like this year?
