kid friendly diy washi tape advent wreath

A few years ago, I shared my easy, long-lasting ribbon wrapped advent candles. With a monkey man, I mean 1-1/2 year old BOY, I was looking for a better solution. Inspiration struck in the tape section of a closing Office Depot. Here is how to make a SUPER kid-friendly washi tape advent wreath.


washi tape advent wreath


  • Washi tape or other colored tape in purple & rose. (I bought Scotch Expressions in purple & Scotch Duct Tape in Metallic Pink)
  • 4 Electric tea light candles (I bought this 8 pack off Amazon)
  • Scissors
  • Dessert plate or saucer
  • Some evergreen branches (optional)


kid friendly advent wreath


  • Take 4 tea lights out of package.
  • Place tape around outside of tea light. Trim tape if necessary.
  • Repeat.
  • Place candles on plate
  • Add greenery (if you have some)

Enjoy the worry-free advent wreath!

If you are looking for something a little fancier, try these ribbon wrapped pillar advent candles that I shared a few years back.
