Fancy Advent wreaths 2022 - easy and quick to make yourself

All you need to make this festive Advent wreath are 4 candlesticks, 4 white candles, a tray, some fir greenery and a handful of baubles.

Simply place the candlesticks on the tray and scatter fir greenery and the baubles of your choice around them.

If you choose gold tones and glass baubles, the colors will reflect beautifully when the candles are lit. You don’t need four identical candle holders, use what you have. The tray doesn’t have to be round either. If you have an oblong one, it will go well with a long dining table.

If you love the simplicity and ease of Scandinavian homes, this decorating idea is for you. Just decorate with a touch of anticipation and Christmas feeling and go.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Golden wrapping wire
  • Light colored ribbon
  • A long sprig of cones with pine cones on them
  • A sprouting onion
  • A golden metal ring
  • 4 pearl white candles
  • 4 candle holders

Here’s how it works:

Place the metal ring on the table and place the larch cone across. Secure it by wrapping the gold wrapping wire tightly around the branch and the ring. Once it is tight, you can place an onion on the right side. You can also secure it with the string. Try holding the ring up by the loop to make sure the onion doesn’t have as much weight and cause the ring to “fall over”. Tie a grosgrain ribbon to the ring. Hang the ring and finally place the candlesticks with the candles. Remember, they should sit on the outside of the branch so they have some distance from the wall. This Advent wreath is best for hanging in a window or outdoors where there are no flammable materials nearby.

Make three skewers per candle from the elephant wire by cutting pieces about four inches long. Heat them over a flame and then insert them into the bottom of the candles.

Fill the bowl with the moss and spread the greenery and pine cones on top. Tuck the four candles into the moss and knot pretty fabric ribbons around each candle.
