IF money were no object, we’d have given our whole house a festive makeover by now – but we all know that decorations can cost a small fortune.

That said, one thrifty mum has revealed how she used some bargain B&M wrapping paper to give her home a Christmassy touch.

Posting on the Facebook group B&M Bargains and More, the mum explained how she covered the wall behind her dining table in four lengths of different metallic paper.

“99p a roll of wrapping paper,” she wrote. “£4 for our new Christmas feature wall!”

What’s more, the savvy mum even made her own DIY table runner too.

She added: “And last year’s 99p table cloth folded to be a table runner. I love it.”

Needless to say, the mum’s feature wall has inspired other members of the group to replicate it in their homes.

“It’s lovely! I’m off now to do the same,” one replied. “Love it”

Another added: “It’s lovely like a Christmas present.”

A third wrote: “I really like this idea! I want to do this behind my dining table. It’s going to look so nice for pictures and video calls over the Christmas period.”

Last week, we revealed how DIY fans are decorating their homes for Christmas on a budget – from cardboard gonks to wire garlands.


For more festive bargains, B&M shoppers have raved about its ‘super dupe’ £6 fluffy slippers which are almost identical to the £80 Ugg version.

And this mum shared her incredible 10p homeware haul from B&M – including grey fluffy rugs and jewellery sets.

Plus this mum nabbed a whopping £90 Morrisons toys haul for just £9 including LOL Surprise dolls and Roblox.
