DIY advent candle
- Paint pen
- Ruler (I used centimeters to fit the size of my candle. A 9 1/2″ candle perfectly fits 24 centimeters and therefore 24 days).
- Measure out your 24 days on the candlestick
- Mark with paint pen, labeling one side with the days and the other side with dashes or dots
- Now you have your advent candle! Watch it melt down the days until Christmas!
