I love to decorate for Christmas, particularly handmade and using natural elements, ivy, spruce, holly. Bringing nature into the home. Among all the greenery I also love to add paper, paper baubles and garlands strung from corner to corner across the room.

Super simple and so effective. Why not try using pages from an old book for the wreath and team it with a natural coloured ribbon for a more rustic look.
