Woman shares pic of beautiful Christmas wreath she made for free using plastic CARRIER BAGS


WITH indoor socialising out of bounds for many across the UK, making your doorway a festive feast for the eyes is a great way to spread Christmas cheer.

One thrifty woman has made a Christmas wreath that cost absolutely nothing - out of cut up carrier bags and decorative bits she had lying around the house.

Posting on Facebook group Extreme Budget DIY and Life Hacks, Mandy Jones shared pictures of her wreath while she was in the process of making it, as well as the finished product.

She captioned the post, "I wanted a wreath but they seemed so expensive, I got a wire coat hanger shaped into a circle, cut up lots of strips out of carrier bags that I had in the cupboard, and made my own wreath. Cost FREE (made out of things I had around the house ) x"

A second added, "Well done, and it will last a lifetime."

One person said that wreaths can also be made out of Kleenex tissues.

"I love your spirit and ingenuity", another commented.

The wreath is adorned with a purple bow and yellow flowers decorations, and displayed next to Christmassy polar bear ornaments and fairy lights.

Elsewhere on Fabulous, we shared how Disney fans were making Mickey Mouse wreaths for Christmas, and they look amazing.

In other festive news, we shared how some festive fans were putting up their Christmas decorations MONTHS in advance - but how early is too early?

Plus some Christmas trees have been mocked on social media with one saying the decorations gave them 'a panic attack' - but what do you think?
