Finally I get to show you my Advent wreath. It is however not round at all. And not really a wreath. I call it Advent box. ;-)
Using a box has actually several advantages:
1. You can MOVE the wreath around. If you have small kids that definitely comes in handy!
2. Putting the box together is alot quicker than putting a wreath together.
3. You can easily make an Advent box even if you have forgotten to go shopping for wreath supplies. Like I do each year. ;-)
I love our Advent box. And I love that I did not have to buy a single thing.
I found the box in the basement … and some red paint. The moss is from our back yard. I luckily had some candles in one of the Christmas boxes from last year. Well, and nuts and pine cones are pretty much everywhere in our apartment right now as the kids love to collect them on our walks.
I also put some punched out snowflakes into the box … just for some added cuteness. :-)
What do you think? Do you like it?
