MAKE IT YOURSELF: Add some sparkle to your home as Christmas approaches
The team at Flowers N Things in Red Lion Street, Spalding, show us how to create a decoration with extra sparkle for the home:
If like us you are desperate to start decorating the house for the festive season, then why not start with this little project which is essentially autumnal, and add extra sparkle as Christmas creeps nearer.
Firstly find a lovely piece of branch. If you have a good search in the garden or even the roadside you might find a lovely mossy one like ours!
The branch can be attached above a fire place or above a doorway, anywhere you will see and enjoy it. Start by wiring on a few sprigs of spruce or foliage, lots of the artificial variety is really good now.
Next wind a string of battery operated LED lights around your branch and foliage.
We added a couple of fir cone baubles as they look quite autumnal but there is definitely scope to add more Christmassy baubles later on.
