Accommodates 4 taper candles - traditionally 3 purple and 1 pink - that mark the four Sundays of Advent before Christmas. An integrated tray/wreath center may be used to hold the “Christ candle” if desired or another Advent/Christmas memento - ie: miniature nativity scene, giving manger, etc.* The wreaths are hand finished with an all-natural, oil wood finish.

Helpful tips -
> My taper candles are too small (less than 7/8”): Apply to the base of your candle or inside the candle hole one of the following: Stick-um, Candle Snuggers, sticky tack, aluminum foil, cling wrap, masking tape, rubber band, etc. Ensure a snug fit and fully upright candle.
> My taper candles are too big (greater than 7/8”): Use a sharp knife or razor blade to carefully shave off some wax at the base of the taper or warm the bottom of the candle in very warm/hot water for 1 minute and press gently into place, removing/reshaping excess wax as needed.
WARNING: This wreath is made of natural wood, a flammable material. To prevent fire - burn candles within sight at all times, keep out of reach of children and pets, never set on or near anything that can catch fire, trim candle wicks to 1/4” prior to lighting, do not allow wick trimmings to accumulate in wax pool, do not let candles burn down to less then 1” above top of candle holder.
