Get ready for the festive season with this biscuit-filled Advent tree

This wall-mounted Advent is easy to stitch up and can be filled with all manner of treats – whether it’s tiny gift-wrapped packages or tasty biscuits, such as we’ve used here.

1 From the white cotton fabric, draw and cut out 50 10cm squares. These will become the pockets – place them to one side for now. Cut an A4 sized piece of both the medium-weight interfacing and the Philip Jacobs cotton and adhere the interfacing to the wrong side of the fabric using a warm iron.

About Your Home Magazine

I know that November isn’t everyone’s favourite month, but I think there’s something rather cosy about coming home on a cold, dark night and curling up on the sofa in front of the fire. If you’re thinking of investing in a wood-burner to warm up your home this winter then turn to page 115, where we’ve got the low-down on the latest models and what you need to consider before you buy. Talking of making your home warm and toasty, do take a look at George Clarke’s column this month, where he shares his expert advice on insulating your home (p.111). Of course nothing beats, a tasty comforting supper on those chilly November nights – so do try our delicious recipe suggestions on page 100, packed with warming spices! I know many of you are keen to be braver when it comes to using pattern in your home, so on page 36 we show how to make it work for you, from balancing scale to creating the illusion of space and, of course, our pick of the latest designs for wallpapers and fabrics to inspire you. Many of us dream of living in a period property with gorgeous plasterwork and beautiful fireplaces, but in reality many of them have had their original features removed or damaged over the years. In this month’s home improvement feature, we take a look at what steps you need to take to restore your period home to its former glory and where to look for affordable, original materials (p.106). Happy decorating!
