Avent candles


Until last year I always had my advent wreath hanging from my living room’s ceiling. This year our sofa’s just standing at that place. That’s why for these holidays I won’t have a traditional wreath. I found some lovely, stripped railway sleepers of different sizes that fit perfectly with my sliding curtains. I wrapped each log with large felt strips and fastened little stars to them. These stars a made with offwhite felt and dark brown willow twigs emphasising thus the natural appearance. Four large ball candles in a dull brown shade turn my sleepers into an advent ensemble. Little wax pads keep the candles in place so that they can’t fall down. It’s difficult to find railway sleepers but you may take round wooden logs as well. You will probably find them in crafts stores, shops offering firewood and even some lumberacks do sell them.
