Ferm Living Inspired DIY Advent Candle 3



I love the simplicity and beauty of this Ferm Living inspired DIY advent candle so much. I have been desperate for a Ferm Living Advent Candle for the last four years but couldn’t justify the cost and finally this year I decided to take matters into my own hands and make my own wooden bead advent candle inspired by theirs.

Over the last couple of years, I have really felt the urge to pare down our Christmas decoration and to go more natural introducing more natural materials and colours. However, one of the traditions that I really love is our advent wreath and candles.  There is something special about lighting them each Sunday and seeing them burn on our dining table as we eat together. Over the years we have made a number of advent wreaths and candles and this year I decided to make my own wooden bead advent candle inspired by the Firm Living one.

This beautiful DIY Advent Candle is Inspired by the Ferm Living Wooden Bead one. Find out how simple it is to make your own wooden bead advent candle.

How to make a Ferm Living Inspired DIY Advent Candle

If not using the predrilled balls with brass grommets for the candle, then Drill a 25mm deep hole with the 5/8″ drill bit at the top of each doll head (make sure the flat end is at the bottom) and then drill a hole through the side of the doll head (slightly below the middle) all the way to the other side for the cord.

The layout your beads in the order you want them.  You might want to try it a few ways to see what you like best. As I wanted to be able to use it in a circle I made sure I had extra wooden beads at each end.

Thread your leather cord through your beads, varying sizes between the four candle balls. Leave approx 5cm at either end to tie it off and keep all the wooden beads in place.
Insert your candles – my top tip is to use a Bostik removable glue dot on the end of each candle to stop any wobble.
I love how versatile it is.  Whether you use it as a loop or choose to display in on a sideboard in full length.
Also, it would be perfect for any season as it isn’t all that Christmassy.
