|Branch with Christmas ornaments|
I have a friend who always says " If it weren't for the last minute, nothing would get done!" Today's post is for the 'last minuters' and the busy - some great ideas with spectacular results, all using materials you can find easily around the home and assemble quickly with minimum equipment....
Go for a quick walk and find some branches or collect some bits of wood from your garden or shed.... just a single branch with a few shop bought decorations or some acrylic paint can create some magical effects.

Or look amongst your office supplies for those sticky notes , or for a really personal Christmas tree , use some family photos with lights to impress your relatives.

Party balloons could be the answer to your last minute festive tree or just suspend from the ceiling some of those baubles you have in your Christmas decorations box.
