It's December, which means it's time to get festive! 🎄
Now that the evenings are cold and dark, it's time to stay inside, drink hot chocolate and do some festive arts and crafts! There are a number of ways to make your home more Christmassey and have fun in the process:
🍊 Dry some sliced oranges to make a garland...
🌲 ...or collect some pinecones to make one instead...
⭐ ...and create some lovely star decorations using twigs!
Crafting your own decorations is a great way to save money and have a more sustainable Christmas! 💚
Autumn offers a final burst of colour before the onset of winter. The amazing leaf colour comes from three pigments (green, yellow and red) which help the trees obtain food. The advantage of dropping leaves is that trees can preserve the energy and water in their branches and trunk over the winter.
Celebrate the amazing colours of leaves, nuts, berries and catkins with a stylish leaf stack!
