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.
Simple Things Magazine has this brilliant tutorial in their latest issue. It’s a beauty isn’t it? Definitely one for indoors, it would get pretty soggy hung from the front door. I think this paper wreath would look great over the fireplace or hung on the door to the dining room – the perfect welcome to our Christmas dinner.

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.
