Create a DIY advent wreath for modern eclectic Christmas decor with a simple and quick DIY. Customize the colors to fit your style!
Well hi there!! There’s definitely a chill in the air now so it’s more fun to put together a quick holiday DIY. We’ve always had advent wreaths in the churches we attend but I’ve never put one in our home until now. It’s a great reminder for the kids and us to remember why we celebrate Christmas. So turn on some Christmas music and make yourself a cup of tea and I’ll show you how to make this modern eclectic DIY advent wreath.
Here’s what you need for a DIY advent wreath:
4 miniture candles in the same color family
1 white pillar candle
A tray or plate
The days are coming, ’declares the LORD, ‘when I will fulfill the good promise I made to the people of Israel and Judah. In those days and at that time I will make a righteous Branch sprout from David’s line; he will do what is just and right in the land. In those days Judah will be saved and Jerusalem will live in safety. This is the name by which it will be called: The LORD Our Righteous Savior. –Jeremiah 33:14-16 hope candle
Steps for DIY advent wreath:
- Use faux greenery (traditionally evergreens) to form a wreath shape in your tray.
- Prop up your four mini candles by placing them in decorative egg cups.
- If they end up being the same height as your white pillar candle, use a small dish to elevate the center candle.
In the wilderness prepare the way for the LORD; make straight in the desert a highway for our God. Every valley shall be raised up, every mountain and hill made low; the rough ground shall become level, the rugged places a plain. And the glory of the LORD will be revealed, and all people will see it together. For the mouth of the LORD has spoken. –Isaiah 40:3-5 peace candle
For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Of the greatness of his government and peace there will be no end. He will reign on David’s throne and over his kingdom, establishing and upholding it with justice and righteousness from that time on and forever. The zeal of the LORD Almighty will accomplish this. -Isaiah 9:6-7 joy candle
And that’s it! A DIY advent wreath in 5 minutes. My kind of holiday decor! Aren’t the blues and greens pretty?
‘Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord. This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.’ Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying, Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests. -Luke 2:10-14 peace candle
I’m really excited to make this a yearly family tradition!
