Christmas is an opportune time for so many things. It's a season of giving, so it naturally feels good to lavishly shower our loved ones, friends, and acquaintances with gifts. It also gives us the chance to show a bit more kindness and generosity to our less fortunate brothers and sisters.
Moreover, Christmas is also a time of healing and forgiving. Staying mad and vengeful during this joyful season is simply too hard, don't you think? It goes against what this season is all about — peace and love.
Giving and forgiving are just two of the most beautiful things about Christmas. These can inspire anyone to actually make something tangible out of it, something wonderful and from the heart.
This Christmas season, wouldn't it be a great idea to create your own Advent wreath? Check out these awesome Advent wreath design inspo we've found!
Take advantage of the natural beauty of acorns
Fresh Pedia Design suggest this nifty idea of creating Advent wreaths with pine corns. It's very simple. You only need to gather different sizes of acorns and you'll be able to create a wreath that's full of natural elegance. It's also very doable as you only need candles and acorns to make this kind of wreath (these pink and purple candles from Root would be perfect for this project!).
Lace it up
This is a great workaround if the stores have already run out of pink and purple candles. Decorate your candles with pink and purple laces and try getting other colors as well to accentuate your creation.
Use leftover Christmas balls
Sometimes you don't get to use all the Christmas balls in the pack you've bought, so if you can no longer find pink and purple candles, feel free to decorate them with your leftover Christmas decorations.
Paint your glass votive
Hang your wreath
This Advent wreath definitely looks elegant. However, take note that in making this wreath, you have to be careful in choosing the right materials. They need to be sturdy, and the candles should be securely in place so that they won't fall over.
Label your Advent candles
Once again, a nice alternative if you can't find pink and purple candles. Homestead Revival uses labels to show the meaning of each candle. This is a great way of reminding everyone in your home, as well as your visitors, about the meaning behind the Advent wreath.
