Make your own Advent table decoration

A special highlight for the Advent season

If you're looking for an idea for an Advent wreath to make then, instead of a traditional one, why not adorn your dining table or sideboard this year with these chunky red candles set in four large, stylish decorated porcelain candle holders and finished with a sprig of pine – one for each Sunday of Advent. Your design can be applied with edding porcelain brushpens; in this design we've left the numbers blank and coloured the background with hundreds of bright, colourful dots. There are lots of colour combinations to choose from: warm reds, cool shades of blue and green, or assorted colours. Once the design is ready, the candle holders are simply baked in the oven to fix the design.
