House Beautiful (UK) - - SCANDI CHRISTMAS -

1 Use spray paint Give old or­na­ments a new lease of life with a coat of metal­lic colour. Ice the tips of evergreens and pine cones with snow spray for a fes­tive feel.

2 Start for­ag­ing Fill a shal­low glass vase with nuts, pine cones, berries and cin­na­mon sticks and display on rough of­f­cuts of wood to cre­ate a rus­tic cen­tre­piece.

3 Bake bis­cuits Ed­i­ble or­na­ments smell and look fantastic. I hang bis­cuits and salt-baked rye bread hearts on the tree with rib­bon.

4 Display the ev­ery­day Vin­tage cookie cut­ters, old keys and pieces of jew­ellery can look beau­ti­ful and add an in­di­vid­ual touch to the tree.

5 Make it per­sonal Sim­ple pa­per tags can be per­son­alised with Po­laroids or black-and-white pho­tos of loved ones. Stamp the names of fam­ily and guests on them and use as place cards.
