Our First Advent Wreath

Did You Make This Advent Wreath or Was It Given to You?

We purchased this Advent Wreath (our first) from Cotter Church Supply in Los Angeles, CA. The cost was ~$11.00.

How Do You Use the Advent Wreath?

We light the candles of our Advent Wreath every night during Advent before we eat dinner. We say our Grace Before Meals prayer and then enjoy our dinner with the candles lit until the end of our meal. Lighting these candles before dinner serves as a nice reminder for us that we are in the Advent season.

Tips and Tricks

  • We purchased this Advent Wreath but plan to make our own wreath next year. We already started assembling the supplies!
