There is nothing better than feeling festive and spending time with your family on Christmas.
For Ever Bouquets Florist owner Melissa Pike encourages Oberon residents to get creative this Christmas and create DIY decorations for the home.
“Crafts are a great little activity for kids and adults alike who are thinking of something to do during the school vacation,” she said.
She said DIY gives people the opportunity to get creative and learn new things.
“You can make things out of materials that you might not have thought of,” she said.
Ms Pike said her business has DIY materials and kits available for purchase.
“We sell holly and Christmas wreath bases, we have pieces that people can come and buy and add to their decorations.
“You can make centerpieces for the Christmas table, wreaths for your front door, hangers and decorations for the house or the Christmas tree, all kinds of things,” she said.
Her best tip for making a great hanging decoration was to use a pine cone.
“Pine cones are great for making hanging decorations and you can add Christmas pieces like holly, Christmas baubles and flowers,” she said.
“You can experiment, get creative, and have a lot of fun with it,” she said.
Ms Pike said For Ever Bouquets Florist will be open Christmas week Monday through Thursday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Christmas Eve 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. for all your DIY needs and more.
“We also have a lot of fresh flowers and we sell food baskets, there are a lot of gift ideas here starting at $ 4 that would make great stocking loads and we have a lot of plants right now,” a she declared.
