If you’re looking for a simpler and uncomplicated version of a Christmas tree, we’ve got just the idea. We’ve come up with this new Christmas decoration (and Christmas tree replacement), perfect for those of us with little time or living space. It’s a great way of displaying all your Christmas cards, letters, and small festive season finds. And all you’ll need is a long piece of string, and a few nails. We’ve created two looks using gold as a backdrop…

Look 1 Mix and match a cluster of letters, cards, postcards, keep-sakes, envelopes, wrapping paper, sweets, and small gifts to create this bright, messy and festive look.

Look 2 Collect and display vintage travel postcards, or any old family photographs.
