Miniature Advent Wreath

Let's make a miniature Advent Wreath out of cardboard and birthday candles.
Cut out four small flower shaped pieces of cardboard and cut circles out of their centers.
Glue them together.
Paint them green.
After it is dry, punch four evenly-spaced holes with a skewer, and then glue in the holes the little candle holders that come with a set of birthday candles. Wrap imitation pine bough around the cardboard.
Place one pink and and three purple candles in the holders.
You are now finished!
