Almost everyone has a battered box of treasured Christmas decorations - make the most of what you have and don’t throw them out unless you have to! If you want to add something new, make sure you think first.
- Avoid tinsel and glitter. Those little bits that end up sprinkled all over the house are plastic. Why not have a go at making your own decorations? How about some bunting, origami or pinecone decorations? Get the children involved too, and keep their masterpieces to embarrass them when you insist on still getting them out every year!
