Advent wreath make yourself – instructions
The pine cones are already collected, and now? The important part of the Advent wreath is the basic framework. You can make this yourself or buy a pre-fabricated polystyrene or straw. The second thing you need is decoration. There is only one rule – let your imagination run wild! Of course you buy the decoration, but you have to make everything else yourself! See how:
To make a great Advent wreath, you have to cut all pine branches to a length of about 20 centimeters. If you have a finished ring, you already have the shape and just need to rewind. If you want you can wrap the ring with green paper so that you can not see styrofoam. The secret to wrapping is the even distribution of twigs on the garland. Start with the wire by wrapping the loose end tightly around the ring. Then come the first fir branches. Our tip is: Leave the first branch to your children! When you are done with this part, the most pleasant thing – the decoration! Leave this step to your children! You have an incredible imagination. Get ideas from our beautiful picture gallery!
Every day a new candle – the story of the Advent wreath
Ignite a new candle every day. Beautiful tradition, but what is your story? Time is the beginning of the 19th century, the place – the Rauhen house in Hamburg. For the children there Christmas played a big role and you always wanted to know how many days until holidays still remain. Then Jochann Hinrcich Wichern had the idea to count the days with a wreath and candles. Every day a candle was lit – on weekdays – a red one, on Sundays – a white one.
