modest black advent wreath with picture frames

an advent wreath with picture frames...the idea for my first advent wreath this year and i finally got the chance to make it...looks like i was too busy with the making of all other advent wreaths.

it is quite simple to make and won't take much of your time.

the initially plan was to decorate this advent wreath with a few black christmas balls, but looking at the pictures of the final project...i had to admit, that i so prefer the no-frill looks so modestly stylish and somehow sophisticated.

...i think it makes a great advent wreath for men...i mean not only for men...but even so.

this is what you need

- four black simple picture frames

- four ball candles

- four paper clips, spray-painted in black

- four black tea light holders

- concrete letters, spray-painted in black

- decoration, optional

this is what you have to do

- turn your picture frame around

- remove the backing of the picture frame

- reassemble the entire picture frame

- turn the clips of the backing towards the inside of the frame

- get your paper clips ready

- mount the paper clip onto the bottom backing clip

- place the frame onto the paperclip, using it as a stand

- repeat with the other three frames

- arrange the picture frames as you like

- add the conrete letters to the arrangement

- place one of tea light holder behind each picture frame

- place the candles on top of the tea light holders

- you might want to decorate the arrangement

i wish all of you a beautiful advent time...thank you very much for stopping regards...silke
