I will be making these little Advent wreaths with the children at church this year. It's pretty simple and comes out cute for a child's craft. Here is description of an Advent Wreath and what each candle means. I plan to explain this to the children when we make it.
small Styrofoam wreath (6 inch or smaller)
greens (I purchased the picks that cost $1 or less, it takes about 3)
birthday candles (1 pink, 1 white, 3 purple)
floral wire (optional)
To start, I painted my wreath green. I am probably going to purchase green wreaths for the children, so we can skip this step.
Next I stuck my birthday candles in (1 pink, 1 white, 3 purple).
