Christmas is only 40 days away and if you are looking to give your home a Christmas makeover without breaking the bank, it might be worth checking out the Christmas decorations at The Works. I checked out everything they’ve got on offer and have come up with seven of my best buys for you – all of them for under £20 and one for each day of the week:
1. This Santa and sleigh model is a great little project for children and their parents and adds a festive touch to your mantel piece or window sill. You can leave it in its natural finish or paint it in Christmas colours.
2. I adore this wooden advent calendar. You can fill it yourself and really add a personal touch to your advent depending on the surprises you hide. The possibilities are endless as you can add anything from chocolates and toys to mini vouchers or advent activities.
3. This festive light up Christmas tree is the perfect addition to any home at Christmas time. It looks traditional and elegant and would make a lovely Christmas decoration switched on or off.
4. I know, I know wooden letters are everywhere at the moment, but these are just £2, so I really couldn’t resist adding these to my favourites. They’re in the ultimate Christmas colours, have a lovely snowflake design and would look cute on a mantel piece, window sill or sideboard. There are different words available too.
5. Everybody loves a chalkboard right? Well, at least I do, so I couldn’t help but show you this adorable little gingerbread man chalkboard. It’s super cute, an absolute bargain at just £1 and a great addition to your hallway, kitchen or maybe mantelpiece – I can imagine it would be quite cute to write a Christmas countdown on it each day.
6. In the UK, people put up their Christmas trees much earlier than in Germany, but that doesn’t mean that we don’t have some sort of green in our homes. Around the first advent, it is quite common to go for a walk in the forest and pick up fallen branches of Christmas trees to take home. Simply pop them in a big vase and add some of these adorable mini tree decorations for some Christmas flair before it’s time to put up your tree.
7. This Colour Your Own Christmas Poster is a great little activity on a rainy afternoon or weekend. It gets you in the spirit for Christmas, keeps little ones entertained and makes a fun Christmas decoration with a twist – probably not one for the living room, but definitely good fun on the kids door.
