One of my favorite aspects of the Christmas season is the anticipation of the countdown to the big day during Advent. Our family’s holiday traditions include lighting a new Advent candle each Sunday evening leading up to Christmas. Today, I am going to share the simple yet elegant DIY Advent wreath centerpiece I created for this year’s festivities. Featuring a lovely metal lantern surrounded by a wreath that holds four candles and plenty of beautiful seasonal embellishments, this centerpiece would be lovely on any holiday table!
- Darice Black Metal Lantern with LED Candle.
- Darice 18-inch Advent Wreath.
- Darice 2.5-inch Red Burlap Ribbon.
- Darice 1-1/2″ Lacquered Holly Leaf Picks.
- Assorted Darice ball Christmas Ornaments.
- Floral Wire.
- (4) 8-inch White Taper Candles.
Nestle the lantern in the center of the wreath, and place a taper candle into each of the four holders on the wreath. IMPORTANT: Be sure to trim the tails of the bow on top of the lantern so they will be at least 3 inches from the flame of the candle when lit.
Your festive DIY Advent wreath lantern centerpiece is complete!
This DIY Advent wreath would be a gorgeous addition to any table, or even displayed on a console, piano top or any other flat surface. As with any project that includes an open flame, the candles should only be lit under close supervision and out of the reach of children.
There are so many pretty pops of color and texture here. It is hard to believe something so elegant can be made in literally minutes!
