Can you make alternative christmasy tree decorations?

One of the best part of the holidays is playing terrible music, corny films, hot wine and gingerbread. And later nights. And hopefully some time off.⁠

Can you make your own tree decorations?⁠

We love making easy homemade dough to bake and paint in lovely shapes. You can also dry old fruit and vegetables to create a warm atmosphere. How about foraging through your garden for nature’s trinkets? Cutting lovely notes out to hang with twine all over the tree? Agree with your family to one buy one new piece or buy your decorations second hand.⁠

How are you decorating for the festive season? We’d love some more ideas!
