Advent Wreath

Here's an Advent Wreath with candles that is not only fun for kids to make but also safe to light each night in a house with children! Obviously children and candles are not the best combination but this is the safest advent wreath using real candles that I know. However, children should always be well supervised around candles.

Advent Wreath

You will need:

A large white tile
Acrylic paint pens
4 votive candle holders (baby food jars are a good stand by)
4 tea lights (you will need more than this if you intend to leave the candles burning for any length of time)

Instructions:

Draw your wreath pattern on the tile with the paint pens. In each corner draw a number from 1-4.

Decorate the candle holders with the paint pens.

When the paint is dry, put a candle in the holder on each corner.

In week 1 light candle 1 every night; in week 2 candles 1 and 2; in week 3, candles 1, 2 and 3, and in week 4 light all the candles.
