Going Au Naturale

Christmas is a time of giving and sharing and although I do love all the glittery lights, tinsel and ornaments I do feel a slight pang at how much it takes to make these and there is always so much waste at the end.

I know that although we sometimes want to be more Eco friendly when we go to the gift shops or craft stores the earthy stuff always seems a bit dull and boring compared to all the shiny nice stuff in cellophane boxes. But I found some great ideas online and I think these add a touch of sophistication and rustic glamour to any living room. I hope you will try them out !

  2. Beautiful ideas, Chan. Very creative.
    You’re right, sometimes eco-friendly does turn out rather bland. But these are truly pretty and colorful.
