Now I'm not going out to buy a whole lot of new decorations, so here is some of what I have been doing. The big reveal will come later.

The baubles are supposed to look like mini fishing floats, and there are lots of instructions on Pinterest. But I just wanted to use what I had, so they look like they've been in the sea a while or something, not quite as I had pictured them.

|Ta daa! Fishing floats and neptunes pearls|
A can of spray paint (that I already owned) can change a whole lot of random coloured ornaments into a colour theme.

Now I am busy gift wrapping. It all has to be recycled wrap for me, plus it has to look beachy and all tone in while it sits under the tree. It takes more effort, but still looks better (I think) than if it was done in a hurry with cheap paper, and is eco friendly.
