Tomorrow we celebrate the First Advent. Time to get into a festive mood and to think about how we can spread some Holiday spirit. This year we have to get used to that all is a bit different. So I put together ideas for a special holiday season because truely after what 2020 has thrown at us we can sure use something special.
This year I a believe we all have increased our share of online shopping. I for one am guilty of it. With the shopping comes a lot of packaging material and when I looked at the growing pile I tried to come up with a few ideas to a) decrease the pile and b) what to make with it. That resulted in my annual wreath and I am quite excited to share my recycling advent wreath with a concrete finish. Going for a different look this year.➢ KEEP ON ReadING
Inspiration can hit you anywhere and at anytime. This years natural advent wreath is inspired by one of my autumn walks across the cemetery. It was a beautiful day, I needed to clear my head, the air was already crisp and the smell of rotten leaves drifted by. While I was listen to one of the many podcasts on my phone I was hit with this view.➢ KEEP ON READING
Who else is busy thinking about this years advent wreath? I usually ponder I ideas already when most people enjoy their summer vacay at the pool. I have to be honest, this year my picture is not that clear. When I don’t know what direction to go I usually just look at my Pinterest board. Usually the first thing that I know is the color scheme of the new wreath. This might happen when I see certain candles or just some decoration that speaks to me. My moms wreath this year will be gold/brown/nude.
Following I want to share some advent wreath inspiration.
This pine needle advent wreath (tutorial) probably took the longest from all the ones I did. I love the look of it.
A minimalistic version is the French Knitted Wreath (tutorial).

My favorite season is slowly but steadily coming closer and today I want to share a quick and easy tutorial with you. It’s a Scented Wall Hanging made of orange peel. Because now is the time to eat lots of vitamins and so we’ve got peels to recycle. And it is a good way to slowly start decoration for Advent without overdoing it.
All you need for this craft idea is some oranges or mandarines, a cookie cutter of your preference and some yarn.➢ KEEP ON READING
