Mum gives her front door a Christmas makeover for just £9.99 with bargain Nutcrackers from eBay


WITH Christmas fast approaching, it'd be rude not to put up at least a few decorations to spread some festive cheer.

Many have gone all out with Christmas lights, trees, wreaths and gonks galore - but one festive fan shared some bargain nutcracker decorations she picked up on eBay.

Posting on Facebook Group Extreme Couponing and Bargains UK, she posted pictures of her doorway, adorned with a cute bow and twinkling with Christmas lights.

The pictures of her welcoming doorstep also show a festive blue nutcracker figure on either side of her front door.

She captioned the post: "Best £9.99 I’ve spent! I’m in love with these nutcrackers.

"Nutcrackers are from eBay just type in blue nutcrackers for front door, they also do red x"

A second said, "I've ordered these too but from Amazon, the fabric is good quality! Can't wait to put them up".

Fans commented at the cheap price, given that nutcracker figures can often set you back a lot of cash.

There were questions about the pricing of the nutcrackers but the pack of two nutcrackers is £9.99, making them around £5 each.

The festive figures are a traditional Christmas symbol of good luck, and according to German folklore they serve as protectors of the house.

These eBay nutcrackers can also be used around a fireplace, in the kitchen or on a balcony.
