Create a snowfall with a flurry of paper snowflakes

With thin paper, make a fold 1cm deep from the short end and then fold back and forth 10 times until you have a long fanned strip.


Fold in half and staple at the fold, cut each end at an angle and fan out the ends until you have a circle to create the snowflake.


Staple to secure then stitch on red beads and buttons to decorate, before hanging from a length of tinsel strung across a window.

Vintage charm

Upcycling is a really popular
pastime and ideal for giving your
home some vintage charm

Keep hold of decorations, tags, bells and ribbon
from every Christmas and re-use the following year.

Look for cards and wrap with vintage designs,
and have a go at decoupage.

Buy a calligraphy set and give italic writing
on tags and cards a whirl, for a unique touch.

Decorating trends


Natural colors and textures are
perfect for creating a snowy
Scandi-style Christmas

Twisted hazel or fluffy willow in a vase are
perfect for hanging lights or miniature baubles.

For 3D stars, dry allium heads before spraying
with metallic paint and placing on the tree.

Eryngium also dries well and looks stunning
trimmed down, sprayed and used in centrepieces.
