Didn't get around to making an Advent wreath yet? Then here's a couple of quick ideas!
Both are from the magazine, in which we visit Eva's beautiful home.
The really easy version is to make an arrangement like this one.
Find four candle holders – they can be different sizes and shapes but of the same material.
Place them together in a bowl with a bit of green and other decorations and 'voila' – you're ready for a cozy Advent time.
This next one takes a bit more effort but still comes together quickly.
Buy a lichen wreath at a farmers' market or from your local florist.
Place it on a nice platter or a display, like here. Decorate with Christmas balls, a ribbon and four candle holders. It doesn't take long, and the result is stunning.
The word 'Advent' comes from Latin 'adventus', which means 'coming'.
So Advent means that something is going to happen or come – the birth of Christ.
We light the candles in celebration of the approach of Christmas.
