Grimm’s - Birthday & Advent Spiral (Natural)
The Grimm’s Wooden Birthday Spiral or Advent Spiral creates a beautiful centrepiece around which festivals and rituals can be celebrated. The natural beauty of the timber compliments all of the Grimm’s birthday decorations, candle holders and candles, all made to fit and all sold separately.
The 24 holes make this wooden spiral perfect for Advent and the lead up to Christmas. A candle or figure can be added each day towards Christmas day, it can be decorated with small candles and holders, or figures & mini vases. The spiral can also be arranged in a long wavy line, perhaps down the middle of a table, or sometimes the use of a portion of the Spiral is all you need.
The brass or aluminium candle holders are required for use with candles.
- Comprises: 8 wooden curved pieces, each with 3 holes.
- Materials: Alder wood, non-toxic water based colour stain.
- Size: diameter 40cm. End-to-end the pieces measure approximately 1.2 metres.

Grimms Wooden Advent Spiral-Natural
The spiral is beautiful. It is larger than I expected and looks amazing when set up. I was lucky to find this at The Creative Toy Shop as it was sold out elsewhere. The spiral came packaged in a lovely Grimms cardboard box as well. I will be purchasing from this shop again.
Grimms wooden advent ring
This ring is just a beautiful way to explain advent to children. I’m going to use it my class to explain the 4 weeks of advent to the class. Advent includes the four Sundays prior to Christmas, a time of inner searching, introspection and anticipation. On Sunday, the first Sunday of Advent, we recognise the mineral kingdom.This week is the Festival of Stones.We will light the first candle and around that candle add a special stone, crystal, shell. Anything from the mineral kingdom dear to the children.We will also add stones, shells, minerals around the Mary scene. On the second Sunday of Advent we will light the second candle, so we will have two candles aglow. It is the Festival of Plants.We will add berries, nuts, flowers, wood, and straw around the candle. Around the Mary scene we will add plants treasures.We will also decorate our classroom and make Christmas decorations using plant treasures for the Christmas tree which we will bring in and decorate. We will also plant a tree or plant bulbs or seeds this week. From the third Sunday, it is the Festival of Animals so we focus our attention on the animal kingdom. We light three candles on the wreath and add something made of wool or beeswax or a little wooden animal. We will add a sheep, donkey and an cow to our Mary scene.We will think of ways to honour animals, like setting out extra bird food, or other acts of kindness to animals and pets. From the fourth Sunday, it is the Festival of Humankind.We add a human image around the fourth lit candle.We will now have all four candles glowing and spreading lots of light.We add shepherds to the nativity scene. We think of ways to show extra kindness to people. By now our classroom will be glowing with warmth, kindness and light! A beautiful way to tell the advent story.
