Advent wreath – meaning and tradition
Just think about the”wreath edge”out! Why should only the classic Advent wreath of spruce or fir green be? Of course, the symbolism! And for many of us, despite its clever, creative ideas, it’s still pretty important, especially when it comes to Christmas. For, as most of us already know, the circle stands for the eternal cycle of life and death as well as for the change of seasons and of day and night. The four candles symbolize the light, which becomes more and more with each Sunday of Advent and on Christmas Eve, with the birth of Jesus, completely shining. Four is a popular integer and symbolizes not only the four cardinal points, but also the four elements in general.
Make a rustic Advent wreath itself
The colors that are used to make the Advent wreath itself, of course, are in principle not insignificant. Red stands for love and fire and white is the paradise color that symbolizes purity and innocence. And Violet is actually the traditional Advent color according to the Christian rules in many regions in the north.
All important symbols that have more or less priority for each of us. Of course, you should decide in this regard what you value more – shape, materials, colors…
As soon as you are aware of this, you can start calmly.
Upcycling meets Advent wreath
Advent wreath itself make a difference
We decided this year to focus on nature and purism. That’s why we will make our DIY Advent wreath completely natural this time and use only white candles. To make the color balance, we will red Christmas balls and a few small pinecone lay down here and there on a few spruce branches. As a basis, we take an old serving plate that has been left by grandma in the basement. This we have beautifully polished with a clean towel and has thanked us with nostalgic silver shine. Gorgeous!
The ripe rose hips from the garden and the cinnamon stars that we still want to bake will give our last-minute Advent wreath the finishing touch. Sprinkle with cinnamon and icing sugar… Done!
Advent wreath itself is also very purist
Here, we just improvised quickly, but you can do it as well, because you can use practically anything for Advent arrangements – natural materials, such as fir green and cones, berries, nuts, apples, moss, cinnamon and candy canes, freshly baked cookies and gingerbread, old glasses, cups, the baking pan or even old wooden boxes, bottles and tin cans.
Tree slices and thicker branches as well as wooden shells look very homely
