DIY Christmas Advent Wreath

With Sunday’s events are truly walked during advent, one where the waiting delNatale is strong. Only for the Ambrosian liturgical calendar advent is already started two weeks ago. You begin to see not only in stores but also to the balconies of the houses. And if we want to help our children to live until Christmas, in addition to calendars already mentioned, there is still time to create an advent wreath.

The advent wreath is a Nordic tradition, according to craftinlearning. This decoration is made with branches of FIR and evergreens, decked with ribbons usually red and illuminated by four candles, as many as are the Sundays from Christmas. Every Sunday evening, when the family is reunited, the smallest of the House lights the candle.

For Christians the Crown symbolizes the kingship of Christ come to Earth to win with its light the darkness. The ring shape of the Crown, moreover, invokes God’s faithfulness to his people. Even the four candles have a definite symbolism:

  • The first is that of the Prophet, recalls hope: the prophets announced the coming of a Messiah
  • The second is to Bethlehem, the candle of salvation, because the Savior has come to Bethlehem
  • The third is that of the shepherds, or the candle of joy, because when the shepherds came to the hut announced the birth of the child
  • The latest is that of the Angels that led to men the happy news

Do you want to make a traditional advent wreath?

It is quite simple, let’s see what you need:

  • Iron wire or foam Crown for plants
  • Scissors
  • Raffia
  • Evergreen FIR twigs or any other (Laurel, Holly, for example)
  • Red ribbons and gold
  • Christmas decoration vari (berries, nuts, pine cones)
  • Four red candles

You can simply create with sprigs of FIR a loop tying them together using the wire and rafia, or you could make the soul of the wreath with wire, covered with a sticker for the flowers that you will find in the nurseries and add branches. If you have purchased a green sponge, you won’t have to do is insert the branches so that it covered the whole.

Created the Green base, you can add the embellishments, red ribbons and candles. If you are long and narrow, very stylish in my opinion, simply click them back between a branch and the other. If they are bigger you should buy candle holder on which secure them or put in the Middle a piece of wire. If you want to see some step, here you find a short tutorial

Tradition has it that the Crown is so, but notwithstanding the number of candles to light, you can vary the achievement, unleashing your imagination and your taste. See for example the advent wreath covered with wool of little house on the Prairie.
