Advent is the period before Christmas. Its starting point varies according to religion. In Catholic tradition, it begins on the fourth Sunday before Christmas. The advent wreath, made for the first Sunday, is both a strong symbol of this period and a pleasant way to start preparations for Christmas. The ornaments - plants, decorations - the colors used and the number of candles vary according to the traditions. Here, we simply retain the principle of four candles - one to light each of the four Sundays before Christmas - and evergreen foliage to symbolize hope during the long winter months. The decorations will have to be adapted according to your tastes and / or what nature will offer you. Difficulty : average Cost : around 15 €, depending on the decorations you choose and the natural elements you can have Tools required: - a straw wreath base (about 2 €) - flat candles (about 5 € the box of 6) - fir branches (or other vegetable of your choice) - pine cones - flexible wire ( around € 3) - (optional) small balls, ribbons, dried fruit or flowers or other decorations of your choice (around € 4 per box of 20)
The ideal is to be able to collect the necessary elements in your garden or in a nearby forest. All fantasies are then allowed according to what nature will offer you. For greenery: fir, laurel, ivy, holly or mistletoe, so many plants capable of keeping their beautiful green color for a long time. For decorations: pine cones, acorns, rosehip berries…
Proceed as for pine cones, fixing one or two balls: a simple knot is enough to determine their position on the iron link.
Choose branches of equal length. Use the ends of the branches (where the needles form a round tip) and drop the branches whose ends have been cut.
