    Upcycle your decorations this year!

    This year, why not try making your own wreath from scrap fabric? All you need is a hoop (or you could fashion one out of an old metal coat hanger) and some strips of fabric (such as old clothing)!

    You could go out for a walk and scavenge some pinecones, paint the tips white and hang them on the tree! Simple, cheap, easy and beautiful!

    If you have some oranges that are on the turn, dried orange slices make beautiful (and fragrant) decorations!

    Of course, we all have decorations we bring out year after year! And fairy lights play a big role in Christmas magic. To ensure you are not wasting electricity, look for LED bulbs, and put your lights on a timer; this will remove the risk of leaving them on all night after a couple of glasses of mulled wine!May be an image of text
