Happy Advent -- Make your own wreath

For many years I looked and looked for a nice Advent wreath and finally gave up and made my own.  It was super easy.  I bought a plain wreath from Hobby Lobby and some shear lavender and sheer pink ribbon.  I also bought 4 basic glass taper holders.  Then simply use the pink and lavender ribbon to make four bows and hot glue them in the four corners of the wreath.  Wrap the remaining ribbon around the wreath, hot gluing periodically to get it to lay right.  When you set it up on the table you simply place the 4 taper holders in the 4 corners by the bows.  You could also replace the bows with lavender and pink flowers or white flowers with lavender and pink ribbon.
