Six sleeps until Christmas and not all of us in the office are as proactive as others! Certain members of the CuCo team have got the tree up, already soaking the Christmas Pud for the third time and decorated their halls in holly! However me, I can safely say that the only Christmas tradition I have upheld is helping myself to my advent calendar! I haven’t even got the trusted Christmas box from the loft.
I thought of going out and buying decorations to put up quickly but then I got this email through my personal email address encouraging recycling and how to economically decorate your home and presents with recyclables…? If I am honest, normally I switch off at this point, but this time round the images caught me and I even clicked through to the links!
I wasn’t disappointed hence since then I have been cheekily looking at all the suggestions out there!
So here are a few of my favourite recycled and homemade decorations! Will I make them… I want to say yes but I fear the scent of mulled wine will take over and I will find myself stirring a pot on the stove perfecting the mulled wine recipe, simply to show off on Christmas Eve!! There is always next year!!
