A simple idea to start with: thread your dried citrus fruits along with cinnamon sticks and create hanging decorations for the tree.
Like that? Next, create your table centre for the all-important Christmas lunch. This can be as easy as placing candles on a plate and surrounding them with cranberries.
Intersperse some sprigs of ivy, pine or even rosemary for contrast. So easy and so festive.
Alternatively, using some oasis floral foam arrange your holly, ivy and berries in a basket around a central candle. Take some pine cones, paint the tips white for a snow-dusted effect and add these at the base of the candle. Our design is shown. Get cracking and send us a picture of yours.
Feeling ambitious? How about a wreath for your door. You will need a 12-14 inch diameter circular frame, wire, moss, ribbon, some of your pine cones, holly, dried fruits and chillies and any other decorations you choose.
Start by winding the wire onto your frame…
….actually, the more we think about this, the more complicated it sounds. Scrap the wreath, your local florist will do a much better job of it.
