How to Make an Advent Wreath from Woven Design Paper Stars

Get the perfect centrepiece this Christmas with this beautiful, unique countdown advent using steel wool and stars woven from Vivi Gade paper star strips from the Creativ Company. Four white pillar candles, each decorated with zinc tags with punched out numbers, are fixed onto candle holders with a point and pushed into the wreath. The wreath is decorated further with small transparent glass Christmas baubles.






Step 1
Cover the wreath with steel wool. Attach with silver plated wire. 






Step 2
Weave 24 small stars using the narrow paper star strips and 4 large stars using the wide paper star strips. Follow the instructions printed on the back of the packaging of the paper star strips. NB: Weave the large stars with only upstanding points on one side.






Step 3
Attach four wide paper star strips around the wreath using a glue gun. Attach the four large stars onto the wreath. Push the four candle holders with points into the wreath between each star.







Step 4
Attach the small stars and the small glass Christmas baubles to the wreath using a glue gun.






Step 5
Tie a piece of doubled-over silver plated wire around each pillar candle. Decorate with a glass bauble and a zinc tag with Advent numbers.
