It’s the decorations that make Christmas so cosy. The baubles you’ve had for years. The decorations made by the kids. The tree-topper the dog once chewed.
It’s also nice to put a modern twist on the classic, or keep pace with the family as it changes. Here are some ideas to update your home’s festive feel – and maybe make a new tradition or two.
Hand-make paper decorations to add a unique and personal touch. It’s really easy to make paper chains or cut out Christmas tree shapes from wrapping paper to make festive bunting. For more adventurous fingers, try making these stylish stars and beautiful hanging trees.
Give each family member their own space on the tree this year with our Christmas Baubles. Choose your favourite photo and let us print it and slot it carefully into an acrylic Bauble that’s sturdy enough to be used year after year. Shop Christmas Baubles
If you’re after a more understated feel, you can print your favourite people onto our new Wooden Christmas Decorations, choose ribbon or twine to complete your look and make yours a more personal, family tree. Shop Wooden Christmas Decorations
Up for a simple project? We love Brittany Watson Jepsen’s oversized holly and berry garland. It’s made of paper but creates a deeply dramatic hallway (expect plenty of ‘wow’s when your guests arrive this year).
If your family are into unicorns how about trying a rainbow Christmas tree – where you move through the spectrum from top to bottom? It’s Instagram gold and manages to tick ‘so hot right now’ and get the kids’ seal of approval too. No mean feat in the season of tinsel and eggnog lattes.
