Minimalist DIY Advent Wreath


Every year, the question arises as to which advent wreath will brighten the coziest and most contemplative time of the year at home and sweeten the wait for Christmas. There are many advent wreaths to choose from - from the traditional advent wreath made of pine branches, to compact advent arrangements, to modern advent wreaths with alternative shapes, designs and materials. The most beautiful option is still a homemade advent wreath. In this blog post, we will show you that DIY advent wreaths do not have to be complicated or expensive, and can also be sustainable.




Modern Advent wreath in Black

A modern, minimalist Advent wreath can be made from surprisingly simple or even unconventional materials. Using a metal serving tray as a base, magnetic candle sleeves and individually selected decorations, a contemporary interpretation of the traditional wreath is created. The serving tray DAVA serves as a solid, simple base and can achieve a modern look, especially in black. The magnetic candle sleeves NOA  hold the candles securely and give the arrangement a touch of industrial chic. Decorations can be chosen according to personal taste - from simple evergreen twigs to minimalist monochrome elements.


This is how you design your modern Advent Wreath

Designing a modern Advent wreath allows for creativity and individuality. Let your imagination run wild and create a unique wreath that fits perfectly into your modern home while still capturing the festive spirit of Advent. Once the base is in place (serving tray, decorative tray, etc.), the next step is to choose a modern color palette. Monochrome colors such as black, white, gray or beige give your wreath a contemporary elegance. If you want to add color accents, choose subtle, harmonious tones. Stylish geometric shapes, such as cubes, spheres or stars, add a modern touch to your wreath. You can also use simple Scandinavian embellishments such as wooden pendants or delicate metal ornaments. If you want to incorporate nature into your design, choose natural elements such as eucalyptus branches or simple evergreens.



Advent Wreath with simple Stick Candles

Adding the right candles to a homemade Advent wreath is crucial to giving it the finishing touch. Choose candles whose color matches the rest of the decorations on the wreath. Traditionally, red, white, or gold candles are often used, but you can be creative and choose colors that match your personal style and decorations. Make sure the candles are the right size and proportion for the wreath. The candles should not be too small so that they are clearly visible, but not so large that they overwhelm the wreath. The shape is also important: stick candles are classic and timeless, while whip candles are a more unconventional and playful option. With the right candles, you can create a warm and festive atmosphere that is perfect for the holiday season.
