This beautiful wooden wreath is a great way to mark off the days in advent. The spiral has 24 holes to move along in the month of December up to the eve of Christmas. You get four 100% beeswax candles and four brass candle holders allowing you to move the candle of the week along the path. It also comes with a crystal, a flower on a peg, a squirrel on a peg, and an angel on a peg who can also move along the path. Add a few greens, a fresh flower or two, and it's a beautiful centerpiece for a dining table or nature table. Children will love watching the movement from the outside to that inside day!
Each segment is about 10 inches long and 1 1/2 inches wide. The center circular pieces is 6 1/2 inches in diameter and includes 2 peg holes on it. Each segment is a little different shape so they can be curved. The entire spiral could be made larger or smaller depending on how much space you allow between the segments. Or it could be set up in long wiggly curve. Your choice. Made in Germany. Assembled exclusively by A Toy Garden for you.
Check out the pictures below to see what can be done with our Advent Wood Spiral Wreath. Thank you, Rachel V. for sharing your creativity with us!
Other items that you may love to have with this are our Gnome Crystal Set for the first week of the stones; Our large Evergreen Tree or Bark Trees for the week of plants, various wooden, felt, or knitted animals for the week of the animals; and our felt Angels or our Doll House Dolls for the week of humankind. With a Peg Postcard Holder, you could add a personal message to the day. Our Silk Shooting Star would be great for the last week, also. You may want to add one of our larger Rose or Pillar Beeswax Candles to the center of the Spiral.
NOTE: In the spirit of celebrating our blessings as we move forward through the month of December, instead of giving children a small gift as they open a window or move through the days on this advent wreath, we recommend adding special prayers for loved ones, good deeds for neighbors and friends, etc. So we have developed a list and will include it along with this advent calendar and all our other advent calendars.
