Take a walk around your garden or the park and find something you can make Christmas decor from. Anna sets the challenge...

I'll be honest and say my decor doesn't change for Christmas. I'm envious when I see the beautiful, rustic centrepieces found online, but I've never invested the time to make my own. Convince me that it's not as time consuming as I image.

  1. I have a pinecone Christmas tree that I made years ago -- it has mini lights strung on it and tiny little decorations! I need to remember to grab some pinecones from in front of one of the grocery stores in town - I have a pin that shows how to bleach them so they're a creamy colour - they would look awesome in a Christmas bowl, in my front hall :)

  2. That pinecone tree is beautiful! I haven't seen one before - might have to go in search of some to try that for myself!

  3. Last year I made a Christmas wreath and your post has definitely reminded me that it is time to think about what I will need to make another this year :)
