Advent wreath, 2012 edition


Creating my own handmade advent wreath has become one of my favorite Christmas traditions (you can see my last year's design here). First of all, I come up with a color theme: this year I opted for various shades of purple, a color that's very sophisticated and always makes a statement. 4 advent candles are indispensable, as well as a little bit of sparkle (after all, I can't imagine Christmas without a touch of glitz and glamour).
I would love to know, what are your advent traditions? Do you have an advent wreath in your home? Do you buy it or make it yourself? Do you light the candles every advent Sunday? And which colors are your favorite?


Let's connect on Twitter and Facebook for more Christmas inspiration!

    I used to make them myself when I was a kid, but somehow I haven't made one in ages, I should start doing them again.

  16. We son't do anything particular here, we set up the tree whenever we fancy (We haven't, yet) and that's it.
    I was going to make an advent calendar for my son just for fun and not for christmas, but for new year (31 days instead of 24) but I didn't had the money to buy the things I needed, so yeah...

    I love the colour you picked here, you're always making pretty things!!! <3

    Girls that glitter love the dark
