  • Layer it up - use objects of various heights to create interest. For example hanging oversized stars or baubles from the ceiling, with stockings up the staircase or even placing a garland around the mantel.
  • Make it frosty - dusting your fruit and window sills with a mix of sliver and white glitter to form an icy look around your home. Feeling extra creative and festive? Then create your own snowflake stencils and purchase some fake snow spray! Great to decorate your windows, doors and also your Christmas tree.
  • Brighten the room - create an easy-to-make candle wreath for a truly traditional look this holiday. 
  • Season's greetings - form your fireplace or stairs into an explosion of Christmas cards and some family photos from last year's get-together to embrace the winter festivities. Try using string to make banners to display your warm wishes from friends and family too.
