Make A DIY Advent Wreath With Wine Bottles In Under An Hour

I am excited to be kicking off my favorite holiday season of the year, and there is no better way to kick off the season than a one-of-a-kind DIY Advent Wreath! There are so many ways to celebrate advent with the family and I am a firm believer that the anticipation up till Christmas is just as fun as the day of! Creating fun and unique advent wreath with left over wine bottles that you and your family can enjoy and celebrate the season with is the perfect way to kick off the season!

My other favorite way to kick off the season is to get my tree up and ready to decorate! We love going and picking out a fresh tree every year but, here are my best tips in transporting your Christmas tree! 

If you celebrate Advent, it is traditional to light one candle each Sunday with the center candle being lite on Christmas. That’s why I believe that this beautifully painted wine bottle DIY Advent wreath centerpiece is the perfect advent project that you and your whole family can enjoy!  If you enjoy counting down the days in December leading to Christmas, take a look at another colorful and fun advent idea here.

All you need to create this project is a set of wine bottles, a bottle of white spray paint, pretty ribbon, and tags. First I started by spraying my bottle with a couple of coats of my white spray paint. Once I let that dry I used hot glue to wrap my pretty ribbon tightly around my bottle. I added some cute tags with purposeful words that I thought my family and I could reflect on this holiday season. Then I set them on a tray and decorated with other festive accessories, and this created the perfect advent centerpiece!

What are some purposeful words that you like to reflect on during this holiday season? A few of my favorites are Joy and Peace! I love using these words throughout the holiday season, that’s why I create a fun and unique way to incorporate them in my gift giving, see how here!

How to use an Advent wreath to start a family tradition

Advent is an important season to our family so on top of the festive celebrations we also take a short time each week to light the candles and focus on the importance Christmas holds for us. It is a great time for us to come together and enjoy what the season is truly about.

I am so looking forward to our comfy family Sunday’s of candle lighting, cookie eating, and festive activities. What are some of the fun and special traditions you and your family do to celebrate the season? We love hearing from you and learning more about you! Let us know in the comments your favorite holiday tradition!

    My family does this too. It’s lovely. We also still get advent calendars. It’s like I’m perpetually young……and spoiled rotten. :)
