There’s nothing like twinkling fairy lights and Christmas decorations to spread some cheer throughout the darker months.
If you take good care of your decorations, then the great thing is that they can be used again year after year. Things like tinsel and baubles are generally not recyclable so if you do have items you no longer need, think about giving them away rather than putting them in the bin.
Ditch the plastic decorations and make your own...
Dried oranges and pinecones look very festive and the added bonus is that they can be composted after the festive season if not covered in glitter and glue. It can be great fun and these short videos show you some great ideas for homemade Christmas decorations!
