Did you know...
The first fake Christmas trees were made from dyed Goose feathers and was produced by the Germans. So the tree you have up in your loft has come a long way since then.
As a result feathers over the years have become the perfect way to decorate an otherwise rather bland tree.
Rather than spending money on craft feathers next time you go our for a walk why not collect any clean feathers. Wash they off when you get home and then when the season comes make small bunches by tying them together with bakers twine and place in the depths of your tree to give it some volume and bring back a bit of yesteryear into you own home.
