A hand-made rustic Christmas reindeer (thank you Paper Runway) is very happy roaming amongst the little wooden trees on my sideboard
A collection of identical free postcards from my local cafe (thank you Avantcard) are framed in cardboard and literally strung up over the fireplace with coloured wooden pegs
Co-ordinate paper, ribbon, handmade gift tags and decorations to make gifts visually gorgeous!
Add a red ribbon and red decoration to dress up plain brown or artist's paper - stunning!
I put items of jewellery in cotton bags adorned with wooden angels - so cute!
Handmade gift tags with Christmas ribbon is the perfect finish
If you don't want to hang your decorations, glue them onto wooden pegs and then peg them up for a change
My summer fireplace is full of fresh hydrangeas and bamboo rice baskets from Thailand...
and hanging overhead....
.... a rustic Noel to you!
