concrete advent wreath, as easy as 1-2-3-4

why didn't i think of this...i love concrete, i love working with silicone molds and i love unconventional advent wreaths. make four numbers of concrete and to stick candles into i did not think of this great advent wreath idea, but i am so grateful, that someone else did and shared it with everyone...thank you so much.

this someone else is called fee and you can have a look at her concrete advent wreath right here

i thought i should glam up the concrete numbers a little bit and added a little glitter...but to be honest, i do like the unfinished ones the same way.
