Time To Make An Advent Wreath – A Complete Guide


Time is moving fast. We are almost in December, and this Sunday will be the first day of Advent. To mark this occasion we have prepared a complete guide to making an Advent wreath so you can light the first candle on time. Suitable for beginners.

Required Materials:

  • a prepared straw wreath
  • coniferous twigs
  • 4 candles
  • 4 candle holders
  • 2 m of ribbon
  • other desired decoration (in the past, we have used little golden leaves)
  • working tools (thin green wire, scissors, garden pliers, and thicker wire for attaching the ribbons and other decorations to the wreath)


  1. The first step is to choose the right size twigs (they shouldn’t be very thick), to be wrapped around the straw wreath with the help of the green wire. Use a few twigs at a time, arranging and attaching them with wire before you add a new set.

  2. Cut any unnecessary protruding twigs to create a nicely rounded wreath.

  3. Add the candle holders to the wreath.

  4. And the candles.

  5. Cut the ribbon into four identical pieces, make a small bow out of each, and put the slightly thicker wire (picture underneath) through each a small piece (about 7 cm long). This will help to attach the bow firmly to the wreath.

  6. Similarly attach any remaining decoration.


Tip: For fixing nuts or cones, you can also use a hot glue gun.
