Magical Christmas tree
A magical effect is created in this garden in Lombardy in Italy by decorating a bare tree with glass baubles and tealights.

Cover your tree with these clear hanging tealights (£4.50 each) from Nordic House. This company has a very wide range of lanterns, candle-holders and Scandinavian accessories. They also sell these white tealights in a clear plastic cup – much prettier for use in clear glass tealight holders….They are £6.95 for 20, and also come in a larger size.
This large crackle glass ball is £8.95 from The Linen Works.
These pretty glass baubles from The White Company are all hand-blown. The clear ribbed one is £8, the large silver-antiqued bauble is £12 and the clear glass gold flower one is £10.
If you don’t have a suitable tree to hang lights from, create just as magical an effect with this outdoor ‘Light tree tower’ complete with star. It’s 9ft high (40m in total), comes with 300 bulbs and is easy to assemble. £130 from Cox & Cox.
