The Advent Tree Trunk
DIY-professionals and those who want to become one can work on the “advent tree trunk” wreath All you need to do is find a 50cm long and 10cm thick tree trunk during your next walk through the forest. Once you get home, put the trunk is a position in which it won‘t bounce up and down. Now you can measure 7cm from both ends of the trunk and mark them. In the next step, divide the middle part into three equal pieces and mark the points for the drill. Take a small drill (two cm-caliber) and make four holes for the candles into the trunk. Almost done! Wrap about three meters of cord across the bottom and the top of the tree trunk and knot the ends of the cord. Finally, you just have to place the tea candle glasses or candleholders in the holes and your advent tree trunk is ready. Now there is nothing standing in the way of a merry Christmas.
