Oh what fun…

EMBRACING HOMEMADE

Less packaging, recyclable materials and money saving makes homemade an ideal way to go for Christmas.

With four weeks,  lots of presents and a huge dinner to go, we thought we’d give you some more food for thought on creative ways to deck your halls!

Homemade Tip #1

Origami makes an easy, colorful and creative solution to decorating the house! I’ve found an example of how fantastic it can look from the New York Museum of Natural History. For instructions on making origami click here, see below to find out how mine turned out!

Homemade Tip #2

Gift wrapping small presents. These cones are easy to make and still look like high quality gift wrapping with the added bonus of being able to make them from almost any material around the house. I’ve found a link with templates for making them, click here.
