O, Christmas tree

It’s Christmas! With just one week to go, I think I can get a bit excited about the festive season now. All my shopping’s done, the tree’s up, tasty treats are baked, the house smells of oranges, presents are wrapped – job done! Compared with last year, I feel very smug and organised – particularly because I decided not to bother buying a tree this time around (£60 it cost me in 2011, £60!!!) but thought I’d fashion an alternative one that wouldn’t cost a pretty penny.

So I went a-foraging with the boy and came home with five sticks, all ready to be tied together with twine and decorated in a just-as frugal way (I went with dried oranges, which look lovely!).

Here’s what went down…
