I've never been very happy with tall candles in spindly advent rings, and had been looking for a shorter, safer, version. I like this wreath. It's approximately 12" across, and sits 3" tall. It is sturdy enough for a month's use, and the open space in-between candles has plenty of space for whatever greenery I want to use. The only thing I might have wished for, would have been a tray of some kind under the candle holders, to keep live greenery fresh. But I'm using fake stuff, so it's not a problem. The candles are standard votive size, so they will be easy to replace for coming years. I'm enjoying it.
