How to #beefriendly with your decorations this Christmas!

 

Whether it's the food, the presents or the party lights, we all tend to overindulge over the festive season. So here are our top tips to #beefriendly and share the Christmas spirit this year!

Indoors

Reduce, reuse, recycle - the sustainability rules that can get forgotten at this time of year. However, there are many ways that you can stay environmentally conscious.

"The lights are turned way down low,
let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!"

Reduce - less is definitely more and when it comes to decorations we love bold and natural pieces. The houses lit with flashing strings of light might be fun, but we know we'd rather hunker down with a candle or two. 

Reuse - Why not collect some materials together, get the mulled wine warming and invite friends and family over to spend a creative afternoon together. Here are a few ideas to get you started.

Recycle - Here's the ultimate challenge for Christmas, how little waste can you generate? There's a whole ton of unnecessary rubbish created at this time of year, we'll be trying to stick to products that can be reused, repurposed or recycled - just like the trusty Seedball tin!

 

Outdoors

We love any opportunity to bring a bit of the outdoors in, but even better than this is just staying outside! Don't neglect your outdoor space this Christmas, no matter how small it is.

We have a whole host of outdoor inspiration on our 'Christmas Our Way' Pinterest board. However, if you're looking for a quick, fun activity then why not create the crown of decorations, the Christmas wreath. You can hang it on your door or in a window, and add bits and pieces that you think your feathered friends might like to feast on. Here's how:

For this wreath we used some offcuts of willow that we had in the garden. We bent them round in a loop and used some old bailing twine to secure the willow in place. As the willow was different lengths we continued to wind the excess pieces around the wreath and tucked them under the twine to make it solid. We took some freshly cut ivy that we had trimmed in the garden and wound this around the willow too, tucking pieces in the willow and twine to secure it. Finally, we collected some hawthorn berries and tucked them in around the wreath to give it a real festive feel!
