Stella looked for an Advent wreath the other day, but couldn't find one. So she decided to make her own.

Here's the result:

Advent Wreath Advent Wreath

She said that she estimates a wreath that size with those decorations would cost about €20 in a shop; she paid about €5 for the raw materials.

So yay! We have an Advent wreath again this year.

(For those of you who are not familiar with Advent wreaths: they're a German(?) custom, whereby one candle is lit on the first Sunday in Advent (the four weeks leading up to Christmas), two candles on the second Sunday (i.e. the first one plus another, new one), three on the third, and four on the fourth. Symbolising, I suppose, how things get lighter and lighter leading up to the coming into the world of the Light Himself, or something like that. Or celebrating the upcoming solstice and the fact that days will soon start getting longer again, for all I know. At any rate, I think it's a nice tradition.)
