Being creative with a christmas decorating classic like tinsel is great fun. This plain green wreath is first covered with gold tinsel and lit by fairy lights, which effectively diffuses the colour and adds extra sparkle. An easy look to achieve with impressive results.

Love it or loathe it tinsel is here to stay, it also has a fascinating history. Originating in Germany tinsel was first made from silver and the name is said to originate from an old French word meaning sparkle. Who can forget those glorious trees from the 50s and 60s bedecked with lametta (a form of tinsel).
