Vine is a cool video app which allows you to make short, looped videos on your mobile phone and post them to Twitter. We made a special series of Vine videos to share our quick and easy recipes, tips and decoration ideas for Christmas.

Each video plays on repeat, and takes just six seconds to fill you with festive inspiration. Share your Vine videos with us by tweeting them to @Tried_Tasted and using the hashtag #6secondChristmas – what can you cook in six seconds?
