Preparing for advent – 1

The week before Advent is always a bit chaotic here as we get ready for getting ready! So over the next week a few posts about what we have planned for the advent season.

Tonight we made an Advent Candle ‘Ring’ inspired by one I had seen in The Simple Things magazine. We used the zinc planter that we plant herbs in in the summer. The soil was still in so we pushed the four candles into this. The boys wrote the numbers 1 to 4 and taped them to the 4 candles. Then we scattered pine cones around the base. (The one in The Simple Things used oasis to steady the candles and a vintage jelly mould as the holder).

The images from my phone are being tempremental so I’ll uplaod a pic when I can!

We are all really pleased with how good it looks. Quick and easy to make – the boys could do it all themselves – and looks great. Result!!

Tomorrow I’ll let you know how we plan to use it.
