Upcycled Tin Cans Advent Wreath
"This is not a tutorial for an advent calendar but for an advent wreath of sorts. In Germany, we have the tradition to put together a decorative piece of home decor (back in the days it used to be a wreath to place on the table - now it can have any shape, really) with four candles. We set it up four Sundays before Christmas and use it as some sort of a countdown. I've been rummaging through my stash and found lovely Christmas ornaments I thrifted for only a couple of Euro. I still had empty recycled cans from corn and beans at hand and ribbon is in my stash always. It didn't take long to come up with these cute little decorative candle holders to count down the weeks till Christmas."
