I love this time of year and making my advent wreath is my number one necessity for the holiday spirit (not counting the tree.... but that only goes up a few days before christmas). This is the third year I use a rectangle instead of a circle. What I love about this one is that it sits on a trey that I put oasis soaked in water on. I then cut down the pine and stick into the oasis. That way I can water the wreath and it stays green for a month :) I didn't think of taking a photo of the tray before I started so here is one similar I found on the internet. Mine is all metal, not wood.
I try to do something different every year, but after 20 years, it gets more difficult each year. LOL :D Usually I keep the color combination simple but now I went for all my favorite colors :) White, red, blue/turquoise and brown. It has taken me a couple of days to get used to how colorful it is, but I think I like it :) OH and to make it all perfect...it started snowing yesterday! :)
Have a wonderful advent!
