Here’s some great ideas on creating your own Christmas tree this year – from flotsam jetsom you can find in your home or office. Who would have thought that random items could be put to such a creative use?
Made from “useless but pretty objects”, creator Jane from All the luck in the world gleaned lots of little items including buttons. Although I don’t do Christmas, this concept makes me want to make SOMETHING with my bits and bobs too. Watch this space!!!
