Make this the year your tree has a really personal touch, by making your own baubles – it’s easy and very effective. Using this gorgeous colour scheme of gold and navy, you can get a luxurious look on a budget. Here I use a mixture of yew, eucalyptus and holly to adorn the tree
Close the bauble with the cap and use gold or navy ribbon – or even colouful twine – to make a hanging loop.
Buy empty glass baubles; fill with items such as blue spruce and eucalyptus sprayed gold. Use tweezers to arrange.
Nothing says Christmas like berries, try cotoneaster, viburnum, pyracantha or berberis. Spray them gold and bind floristry wire around the stalk to hang.
Spray a sprig of holly gold. Take a piece of floristry wire, about 15cm long, and bind around the stalk, leaving enough to make a hanging loop.
Take the longest stalks of yew you can find and spray them gold. Fold around to make a circle and attach the ends with reel wire. Hang with navy ribbon.
Mini picture frames are perfect with eucalyptus leaves sprayed gold and encased in the glass. You could also use honesty seedheads or a bay leaf.
