AS ANY parent knows, when you give kids free reign on the Christmas decorations things don’t always go to plan.

One mum has shown off her toddler’s attempt to decorate her mother-in-law’s tree – and it will have you in stitches.

The festive fir is bare throughout, apart from the bottom two branches (and an angel on top – which presumably gran added).

The lowest branches have been crammed full of dozens of red and silver baubles, as well as the odd gold star, as they were all the toddler could reach.

Posting a picture of the finished job on Twitter, mum and author AC Thomas said: “My toddler decorated my mother in law’s tree.”

The post soon racked up more than 400,000 likes and 35,000 retweets.

Commenting on it, other parents joked: “They did a great job”, “children with a creative mindset” and “she (the gran) better not change a thing”.

Others praised the child’s effort, writing: “The bottom looks really nice. Your kid has a good eye. Just needs some height, lol.”

While one commenter noted: “Adorable. This would make a great Holiday growth chart over the years!”


We recently revealed how DIY fans are decorating their homes for Christmas on a budget – from cardboard gonks to wire garlands.

While cheap Christmas trees covered in tinsel look ‘common and tacky’ – expert claims – and if yours is white it’s even worse.

And one mum has made a DIY wine advent calendar using mini bottles which were on offer at Tesco.
