Mums are creating fake snow at the bottom of their Christmas trees using £12 fluffy white rugs from Amazon – The Sun

WE ALL dream of a white Christmas – and now you can guarantee one in your living room.

Mums are using £12 fluffy white rugs from Amazon to create a fake snow effect at the foot of their Christmas trees.

The genius product – called a 'Christmas Tree Skirt' – comes with a hole in the middle and an opening so you can slip it around the bottom of your Christmas tree.

Not only does this add to the festive-factor by giving the appearance of snow without any of the melting, you can hide your presents in the fluffy fabric, and the material will catch any pesky pines needles.

On the Amazon website, the description reads: "Luxury faux fur Christmas tree skirt is sure to give your tree that 'wow' factor and bring the Christmas spirit into your home."

It continues: "Soft warm and useful: High quality plush fabric material with soft and comfortable texture.

"The favourite spot for pets in winter and [keeps] pine debris, water and sap that may drip from your tree off floors or carpet."

It comes in three sizes to cater for all widths of tree – including diameters of 30.7, 35.4 and 48 inches.

The idea is already popular with mums who have shared snaps of their Christmas trees – complete with the handy fluffy rugs – on Facebook.

A member of group 'Mrs Hinch Made Me Do It' asked people to share pictures for "inspiration".

She wrote: "Can you show me your Christmas trees ladies…..I need inspiration."

Her post soon received 1.2k 'likes' and hundreds of people sent her pictures of what they had created at home.

Many women had chosen to use a Christmas tree skirt – like the one sold on Amazon – to finish off their festive decorations.

We also revealed that a mum gave her dark and tired kitchen a new lease of life using £60 tiles from B&Q.

And another woman transformed her boring bedroom for just £100 including new paint, blinds and cushions from B&Q and Dunelm.
