3.12. First Advent Sunday

The First Advent Sunday arrives to the middle of the everyday chaos bringing touches of coming Christmas. First Advent is one of the best Sundays in a year. I always wake up early and take four advent candles from a cupboard. I light the first candle while drinking my morning coffee. How one candle can feel so festive! I listen to Christmas radio and might bake the first Christmas plum tarts. This advent candle arrangement uses materials that quite many already have in their cabinets which is perfect for a last minute DIY. Happy First Advent Sunday to you all!

You will need:

4 old mugs
Sea salt
Four candles
Black permanent marker

How to:

Step 1. Using permanent marker draw numbers 1-4 to the mugs. 

Step 2. Fill the mugs with sea salt and press candle to the salt. Place the mugs to a group.

Now you can celebrate the First Advent Sunday by lighting the first candle!


  1. I love the simplicity of this. The mugs are pretty.

    1. Thank you! Mugs are all different but have a similar style so I thought why not to put all in a same arrangement.


Thank you for your comments!
