When Christmas comes, even the most grumpy ones end up wanting to decorate a little bit. It is a good way to add some lights in this gray winter and young and old like to admire the result of our efforts.
This year, we suggest you to avoid buying commercial decoration, but rather make your own decorations by collecting materials that you may have at home. More economical, more ecological and more original!
Here's something to inspire you in your creations:
