At the craft table

Jazzing up your Advent Candle

Advent has officially begun and whilst a lot of the focus is on Advent calendars, you can’t forget about Advent candles. I always had one as a child but because I don’t own a candle holder I haven’t bought one for a few years. This year though, I saw an Instagram of someone’s Advent candle surrounded by foliage and being used like a table centrepiece and I decided that I had to give it a go! It was really easy to make and really effective so I thought I’d share it with you.

What you need:

  • Advent candle
  • Oasis
  • Cake board/a plate covered in foil (!)
  • Foliage (in particular, holly and ivy)

What to do:

  • Place the oasis on your board or plate
  • Put the candle in the middle
  • Get creative! Push the foliage into the oasis, making sure you hide all the oasis

Although Advent has started it’s not too late to jazz up your candle!
