Homemade Christmas Cheer

It’s that time of year to start thinking of decking the halls with tinsel and holly and brightening up our home.

But sometimes the same old decorations or mass produced baubles just don’t do the trick. So this year, Brig is here to suggest some fun and easy to make decorations to give you a personal and creative change this Christmas.
