Our Advent wreath

This post is also available in : French German Italian

Claire did DIY well yesterday : as every year, she made herself our Advent wreath (strictly speaking, it is not a wreath, it’s rather a line). In these moments, it’s better not to be on her path !

She bought candles, florist’s foam, ribbon, and balls ; she got back and washed four empty cans of cat ood to make jars, and she cut some extremities of the branches of various shrubs of the garden. Talking about it, she chose the favorite branch of a pal on the fir tree : we have to be the only ones to have an Advent wreath perfumed with tomcat pee !

Claire covered a basket cover with aluminium foil and placed jars inside. Jars were furnished foam wet in which Claire hammered candles and small branches. She then fixed knots and balls with wire. And here is the result :

We were not forgotten : we received an Advent calendar filled with treats : can’t wait for December 1st !

Thank you for all your kind comments for a full recovery which very pleased our poor Momo.

    What a TOTALLY beautiful Advent arrangement!!!! Your Mom is very clever indeed. I also quite like your kitty Advent calendar……I’m going to make sure and add that to my Mom’s shopping list today!!

    Love, Sammy

    That really is a gorgeous advent arrangement. The Mom did a great job with it and thanks for the nice instructions. You all have a great day.

    She did a great job on the advent wreath. I am so jealous you kitties got an advent calendar for kitties, I never can find those in the US. I made one last year that we will reuse, but it isn’t as cute 🙂

    Looks like Christmas is not far away! Even if the snow is gone.
    Yesterday my Mistress went into the attick and brought back a couple of boxes with Christmas “material”. She only set up a wreath on the entrance door. She’ll do the decorating job next week-end, probably.
    As far as the Chrismas tree is concerned, it’s up to RouXy’s Master to decide when he will go to his forest and bring one back on his tractor. It depends on the… Moon.

    That all looks so beautiful. Seeing this we are getting into the mood, Zorro and Pixie 🙂 We haven’t seen such a lovely calender, yet. I wonder what treats you all get 🙂 Pawkisses for a Happy Advent 🙂 <3
