Focus on the details With four little letters on some string, we instantly know which season we’re celebrating! Small details like this can be achieved very easily with a sheet of paper and a pair of scissors. This DIY bunting hangs from an easy-to-make wooden tree, but could equally well be stuck on a wall, strung across the corner of a mirror or hung along a banister.TELL US…Do you have a favourite way to decorate your home at Christmas?

Reclaim woodOne of the key components of any modern rustic scheme is wood, so why not incorporate it into your festive décor, too? You can carve out whatever tree shape works best for you and keep it as bare or as decorated as your like. Here, a reindeer, a garland and a few other ornaments are cheerful and festive without being overbearing. Check out how to use wood for a modern rustic look

Make your ownWhy not create your own tree, using salvaged materials? This attractive design is made from wood, but you could use wire, cord, cardboard or anything that can be fashioned into a tree shape. There are several advantages to this DIY approach – no needles dropping on the floor and a tree that will last year on year, for starters.Tour a home filled with beautiful homemade decorations
Lara Sargent added this to Christmas: Contemporary Decorating Ideas
Take a Scandi approachThere is something oh-so festive about a Scandinavian look – and it’s utterly stylish and dead simple to pull off, too. Use silvery woods and slate tones and decorate liberally with silver stars, pretty strings of fairy lights and heaps of Christmas spirit. (And if you do hanker after a dash of colour, a slash of bold crimson will instantly warm things up.)Find more Scandi style ideas here

Set the agendaWork out what you want to get from Christmas and how you’d like it to be. Do you fancy a traditional celebration, with a big tree and a turkey dinner? Or are you more interested in swerving tradition and just enjoying family time? It can be helpful to sum up your intentions for the day in one word, such as ‘playful’, ‘alternative’, ‘meaningful’ or simply ‘merry’!Discover how to keep your Christmas tree in top shape
