Self-confessed ‘lazy mom’ shares ultimate tip to setting up and decorating the Christmas tree within five minutes

A MOM revealed her hack to setting up and decorating her Christmas tree within minutes.

This could certainly be useful for those who don't want to spend hours doing their tree up.

A mom, who posts on social media under the name of Heather, shared how she was able to set up her living room in just minutes.

The blonde beauty, along with her husband, had dragged out of storage a massive plastic tree covered in orange cling paper.

Setting it up where they wanted it to go, the couple then began unwrapping the tree and peeling off the layers of plastic.

Underneath, the tree began to take form as its branches expanded and revealed that it had been stored with the decorations still on it.

The husband was careful while unwrapping and no decorations fell off the tree.

She wrote alongside the video: "We wrapped our Christmas tree last year.

"No regrets. I had to do a little bit of fluffing and ornament arranging."

In a second video, she showed off the finished product and it looked like it had recently been decorated.

But, if you're still choosing to decorate your Christmas tree the old way, TikTok user Kelly Fitzsimons demonstrated how she adds fairy lights to her festive fir to avoid having any dark or dingy patches so commonly seen on trees.

She explains that she begins with three sets of 2,000 cluster lights, but rather than simply going around each of the branches, she starts by circling the trunk.

Speaking on her video, she says: “I just push the lights into the base of my tree, the whole way up the trunk.

“There’s no particular way of doing this, you just lay them on top of the branches. Once you are taking these off your tree they just pull off they’re so easy to get off.”

Kelly points out that another mistake that people make when hanging their lights is taking them all the way around the tree. 

She continues: “As you can see I’m not walking around the tree, I’m going from left to right and right to left once you have them done you’re going to go on to each individual branch of your tree in a zig-zag shape catching each corner underneath a bit of pine. 

“I do it a bit looser here and you can see exactly what shape I do and then you work on the tree from left to right and right to left, don’t walk around it.

“I do one half with 2,000 lights and I can do the second half with the other 2,000 and it’s nice and bright.”

The end result sees the tree glowing from the inside out with fairy lights, leaving Kelly’s 3.8 million viewers seriously impressed.
