How to make

Step 1

Gather your materials together.

You can basically use anything from outside to create fun natural hangings, as well as dried fruit and cinnamon sticks.

Step 2

Make star decorations using twigs by cutting the twigs down to similar sizes and, using a hot glue gun to secure them in place, hold for a minute whilst the glue is drying.

Step 3

You can also make snowflake-inspired decorations using the same technique with the twigs and then adding smaller twigs to the tops of the sticks, again using the glue gun to secure and holding in place until dry. Once you are happy with the shape, add twine.

Step 4

The oranges and cinnamon sticks on their own make lovely natural decorations too so simply thread a length of twine through and secure to make your decorations. Leaves, berries and foliage will also work well and will simply dry out when hung up.
