That Christmas feeling is upon us! Some of you I’m sure have already put up your Christmas tree and festive decor. In our house we usually get the tree up the week before Christmas and this year I have been looking in a couple of eco-friendly Christmas Tree ideas. Here are a couple of my favourites, found on Pinterest.
