Alternatives to Tinsel

The big question of the festive season - should your Christmas tree be adorned with the glimmer of sparkling tinsel, or are you going to let your creativity shine through any opt for a crafty alternative this year? Here at Spicers of Hythe, we’ve come up with some tinsel alternatives to inspire you this festive season!

Pretty Paper Chains
First brought to us by the Victorians, and a popular favourite with many generations since - who doesn’t love the classic paper chain?! Whether you opt for a shop bought kit or select and cut the paper yourself, few decorations are as straight forward and bring such joy as the methodical looping and sticking of the paper strips!

A Poppin’ Garland
Another traditional look is the humble popcorn. Simply cook the corn until perfectly puffed up, leave au-natural (or add food die/ toss in some glitter!) and carefully thread onto a fine string with a darning needle.  Perfect crafting fun for all of the family to create the classic vintage look – that is if too many aren’t lost in the taste test first!

Jingle Bells
Few things embrace the childhood magic of Christmas than the classic jingling of bells! To incorporate this into your tree’s decorations, simply purchase a bag of bells from your local craft shop and knot onto your choice of rustic string or fine ribbon.  For a fresh new look next year simply remove the bells and replace the ribbon/string depending upon next season’s colour scheme.

Beer might be in the title but there’s more to it than golden brews. Corn scratchings, salt crust peanuts, capital crisps & pork bites bring luxury flavours to your living room. This is the taste of your favourite pub snacks but taken to a whole new level. With names like Mr Filbert & Serious Pig, they’ll wish their local started stocking snacks as scrumptious as these.
