Your Christmas Your Rules : Chandelier Wreath DIY

A few months ago I took part in one of the most exciting opportunities of my career to date – the new ‘Your Christmas Your Rules’ campaign for House of Fraser which allowed me to play out my Martha Stewart crafting fantasies.

The festive campaign inspires customers with a host of different style options for Christmas and I was asked to collaborate on decorating tips that encouraged shoppers to throw out the rule book this Christmas. With the help of some amazing hair and makeup artists [my first experience of this and it was divine] and talented stylist Amanda Koster who I used to assist at one time and was so honoured to be working alongside – we created a beautiful and oh-so-christmassy DIY video that I am so very proud of.

You can see me creating a showstopper centrepiece with a Christmas Chandelier Wreath in the video below and you can read the rest of my tips here. Happy crafting!
