DIY Advent wreath ideas – color schemes
Before you start to work, check out these DIY Advent wreath ideas to choose the color as your advent wreath should match with the rest of your decor. White color schemes or minimalist interiors will benefit from a silver or purple wreath, while traditional red-green color combination and golden candles work very well for classical or modern interiors.
If you have already decided on the color scheme, you need to gather the materials you will use. Contemporary advent wreaths with candles are easy to craft, because they follow the traditional form but with modern colors – you can combine four purple candles with silver balls as decoration. Or as an alternative – you can paint pine cones in different colors – purple, pink, blue – and combine them with four high candles – it always looks good, and is relatively easy to make. Making a mesh wreath or a burlap Christmas wreath is also a great idea, especially for rustic style decorations.
DIY Advent wreath ideas with a natural look
There are quite many DIY Advent wreath ideas with a lovely look which are made of natural materials. These materials can be found during a walk through the woods – beautiful branches, pine cones, fresh, soft tendrils, ivy, willow, blackthorn –all of those are abundant and a suitable material for the base of your wreath. Choose the candles in a matching color. White is always suitable. Red, of course is traditional and works beautifully with evergreens. Attach small decorative items such as deer figurines, small sledge, small bells or anything else will add to the final look of the wreath.
