In just over four weeks it will be that time again: we will light the first candle! That’s why I’m showing you my last minute DIY Advent wreath from last year today. I simply reused decorations and DIYs that I already had at home and the result was a modern, colorful Advent wreath with stick candles.

Modern, colorful Advent wreath with stick candles – DIY for the Advent season

Feel free to pin one of the images on Pinterest so you can find the idea again and again.

I think the colorful Advent wreath was now the third Advent wreath in a row that I designed without any fir greenery. Below I will link you to my Advent wreaths from previous years and my collection of the most beautiful Advent wreaths to buy. This year I just put together a few nice things that I already had at home. I’ll link them to you below in the materials list, along with alternatives if the corresponding pieces are no longer available.
