Dawn at By Sun and Candlelight had a wonderful craft (as she always does) for the Advent season -- making an Advent wreath.
I absolutely loved the idea, so I made the trek to my local craft store and got some supplies -- a wooden circle, a package of wooden stars, some glass tea light holders, and some paint (suitable for glass). I followed her basic pattern (which I loved), but I chose to paint the glass holders instead and to decorate the wooden holder with the words "rejoice" and "gaudete".
And voila! My finished project!
