Simple no-frills, no-glitz Advent decorations
Not having lavish decorations doesn't mean you don't value the tradition of lighting a candle on each of the four Sundays of Advent. The following three Advent decorations don't need frills and glitter and work perfectly in a contemporary interior.
This tasteful advent wreath of white poinsettias, poppy heads, larch branches and Lunaria (Honesty) is both elegant and natural. With a little skill, and the right materials, you can make it yourself. As well as the floral materials above, you will need two different-sized straw wreath frames, wooden skewers, wreath wrap tape, dried water hyacinth leaves, mossing pins, candleholders and pillar candles, as well as a suitable planter and a shallow bowl or plate to place them on.
