As money is tight I have made my own Christmas presents for friends and neighbours. I made bird feeders (1 kg wild bird seed £1. A block of lard 38p - string I had already) Some I shaped myself, others, I got the kids to collect pinecones and put the lard over them and rolled in the seeds.
The cinnamon decorations I bought a bag of cinnamon sticks (£2.50 - reduced!), cut on in half (they were 20 cm long|) and hot glued the two together and added ribbon for hanging.
The other decorations I made; I printed music sheets from the internet, I was hoping to find some in charity shops, rolled them up loosly, and added ribbon the hang them. These too will be used for present along with the bird feeder and cinnamon sticks.
