We are already busy with family and work, and it's no wonder we stress so easily during the festive season having to buy presents, decorate the home and cook for the family! Ideally we would like to make everything look perfect and nice so I am giving you a heads start with 15 stylish and simple Christmas ideas you can use. Just remember the golden rule, keep it simple and easy!
I was trying to keep it to 12 ideas but there are so many I had to add another three.
I saw this simple idea and made it with neon coloured paper, grass green ribbon and wash tape. Kids will love to help out too!
How easy is this! I did this for my wedding using ribbon and craft glue, I wish wash tape was available 8 years ago!
