Paper Christmas decorations are affordable, timeless and far better for the environment than tinsel, so let paper streamers, paper chains and starry garlands be the icing on the Christmas cake of your festive home decor this year.
You don’t have to spend a fortune on tinsel, glitter and baubles this Christmas. There are wonderful ways to decorate your home and incorporate your decor style, whether elegant and minimalist or colourful and vibrant. Paper Christmas decorations can be made at home and are fun craft projects during the festive season. Plus, they're a wonderfully sustainable way to celebrate; whether you weave them into your Christmas tree, trim your fireplace or simply dot them around the living room.
Ever thought about utilising paper when making an indoor Christmas wreath? Give it a go!
Christmas is an opportune time to get the children involved in creating keep sakes. The perfect way to educate on sustainability and the value of money, these activities mean you can talk about the benefits of recycling; favouring timeless homemade pieces over throwaway plastic ornaments.
Try independent shops like Cambridge Imprint and East End Press, Choosing Keeping and The Shop Floor Project to source your materials. However, if these stores don't match your Christmas holiday style, bigger stores like John Lewis and The Conran Shop are reliable go-to's for an array of modern designs. If you can’t fit in making your own paper decs into your festive agenda, you can always turn to Etsy. This online platform provides an abundance of the best hand-made decorations from small business owners.
