Get creative with your Christmas decorations this festive season by mixing old favourites with handmade additions to festoon your home. Bring the festive cheer with our favourite ideas.
This year it’s all about twigs! Get your winter woollies on and head out for a walk to collect a selection in all shapes and sizes then hang above a table, or window. Decorate with lights, ribbons, and your favourite baubles to create a unique centre piece for your Christmas dinner table. The perfect project for a chilly winter’s evening.
Let the little ones get involved by creating their own stained‐glass window decorations with card and tissue paper. Or play with silhouettes and adorn your windows with handmade paper snowflakes and houses. So simple, but very effective against the dark, winter nights.
Wreaths & Garlands
Traditionally made from winter foliage and evergreens, wreaths and garlands are synonymous with Christmas. Spruce up your whole home and adorn more than your front door, by decorating your windows, your mantelpiece, and even your banister. Choose a scheme that complements your home, or go natural and celebrate the seasonal. Get the maximum enjoyment from it by making your own, while indulging in a glass of mulled wine and some carols. Or if you need a little inspiration, there are a host of wreath‐making workshops popping up.
