1. BUT WHO SAID THAT CHRISTMAS TREE HAS TO BE A ONLY A PINE?
There are many ways to realize your Christmas tree without necessarily having to cut firs, pine and other evergreens. Old books, twigs collected in the wood, corks, sheets of paper, cloth or felt, even bottles or old CD! Whatever material you want to use you just have to use your imagination. And if you really don’t want to give up to decorate a fir, choose natural trees instead of plastic and at the end of the holidays remember to replant it in the garden or in a pot large enough. Next year it will be back nice and ready to be dressed up for the holidays 😉
2. YUMMY SIMPLE DECORATIONS
This Christmas can be a good time to release your skills and creativity in the kitchen! You don’t need to be a professional pastry chef to make small pretty and tasty decorations.
