Head outdoors to gather garlands, wreaths and berry-filled arrangements.

‘Tis finally the season - and it’s time to reach for the Christmas decorations once more. But why stop at a tree? Every corner of the home is ripe for a little ornamentation come December 1, from a bowl of pine cones on a hallway console, to branches on a bedside. And the best news is that you can load up for free by heading out to nature (though always be sure to do so sustainably, by making sure you never pull up roots and source from plentiful supplies).

Top tip: If you’re foraging for greenery, shake out your finds and then let them acclimatise for a couple of days before bringing them inside - that way any bugs can crawl safely away. Here are some ideas to get you on your way.
