DIY Advent Wreath

Happy December!

We’re into our first week of our advent calendar and we’re already covered in glitter (and quite possibly drowning in Christmas cheer). Even though the first Sunday of Advent has passed that doesn’t mean it’s too late to make a wreath. Since we’re homeschooling and following a Catholic curriculum I think this quick DIY is especially important.  It’s too easy for kids to get lost in presents and cookies during the holiday season.  I find myself guilty of that too.

In case you don’t know...

The four Sundays of Advent that lead up to Christmas mark the coming of Christ; pretty simple.

If you’re not Catholic then let’s call this DIY a Christmas centerpiece. Allll-righty then.

You’ll also need some string or ribbon and a candle holder.  I found this one at a thrift store during the fall. In case you don’t have one you can always tie the greenery around four individual hurricane candle holders. That would be mega pretty too! Don’t forget the candles.

Continue wrapping the stems around the candle holder until it looks nice and full. Wait until all the stems are in place to make the bows.

      Thanks for clicking over Joyce. I find that keeping the kids grounded is biggest struggle we have with the holidays.
