Since our women's retreat, there has been much discussion concerning the "proper" colors for advent candles. Some use purple with a pink for the Theotokos, following the Roman Catholic tradition. Others have a more elaborate color system - with a different color for each Sunday during Advent. This year, I decided to use the beeswax candles I already had at home - and to differentiate the weeks, I printed off thumbnail icons for each Sunday. A little mod podge and some gold 3-D paint around the edges, and we now have a lovely advent wreath, commemorating the Sundays that fall during Advent.Download icon images
