Advent Wreath Banner


 This Advent Wreath is an innovative and space saving adaptation of an old tradition.  The pattern below makes a banner finished size 60 x 75 cm. If you want to make it even more quickly, substitute the  fabrics for poster card and coloured paper.


  • Banner background: Dark coloured fabric  60x100cm (eg. twill, felt) hemmed top and bottom (approx 10cm each)
  • Dowling rod, 8mm diameter.
  • Felt fabric squares in purple, pink, gold, white  and two shades of green. Coloured self-adhesive plastic makes a good alternative especially for the  lettering.
  • Glue
  • 4 self-adhesive Velcro dots.


  1. Enlarge the candle, leaf, flame and lettering patterns by 5. Carefully trace and cut the shapes on the corresponding colour felt. Click here for the template.
  2. Arrange the candles, leaves and letters on the background. Carefully glue those parts down.
  3. Apply Velcro dots to the back of the flames and position the matching dot above each candle. For each Sunday of Advent, ‘light’ the next candle.
