1- Make the best wreath:
the trick to a luxuriant and expensive looking wreath is to start with a great foundation, packing in as much sack moss a you can onto the wire frame so you can load your wreath if the sack moss is nice and lush.
2- Decorate the best tree:
use a ribbons and wire to attach the baubes.
Put the fairy lights on then cover the wires and plastic with tinsel, wich gives a beautiful glittered effect when the lights are switched on.
3- Get ahead with gift making:
start in October then in November you should be ready to make christmas stockings and any new decorations for the tree.

don’t leave it all until December.
In October back a day of work midweek and hit the toy shops before the christmas rush and before everything sell out.
