There's nothing like a bit of upcycling to give your Christmas that magical touch! Yes, there are so many different upcycled pallet designs out there but this one is simple yet eye-catching.
All you need is a mirror and some drawing materials - old lipstick is also a great option - and get drawing!
Perhaps slightly extravagant and a bit of a challenge to replicate but stunning nonetheless.
Simply attach your choice of lights to a board or even directly to the wall or door. Make a simple tree shape or whatever you like!
