Mum creates pink Christmas tree using items from eBay, The Range and B&Q

  • Kirsty Toogood, 27, decorated her Christmas tree in blush pink and silver.
  • The decorations cost her less than £40 and look stunning.
  • Kirsty bought products from eBay, The Range and B&Q.

At this time of year, there’s nothing like a festive Christmas tree to brighten up the living room, and one mum has created the pink tree of dreams. 

Kirsty Toogood, 27, used budget products like faux flowers, sparkly baubles and glittery letters from the likes of eBay, The Range and B&Q to create the beautifully feminine Christmas tree

Kirsty, who lives in South Wales with her five-year-old son, told money-saving community LatestDeals.co.uk: "I recently redecorated my living room to the colours ‘blush pink’ and I loved the colour ever since! I fancied a change this year with not just a normal Christmas tree so I went for a blush pink themed look and I love it.”

Kirsty’s tree might look expensive, but she managed to keep the cost of the decorations under £40, sourcing products from eBay, The Range and B&Q. The tree also cost her £35 from Amazon.

"I bought the pink flowers from eBay,” she explains. “I bought a pack of 10 which only cost me £2.40. The other decorations were purchased from The Range and B&Q, and cost me around £30 to £35. My theme was pinks, whites and silvers so I just bought some of each and got the flowers to make the theme work together. 

"I’m a single mum and wanted to make the tree perfect - and job done as my son loves it and said ‘Oh, Mum, that’s so pretty.’

"If you're thinking of creating a different kind of Christmas tree this year, look on Pinterest for inspiration and hunt in budget stores like The Range for well-priced accessories. Once you find something you like, it becomes much easier to pull together matching accessories and before you know it your whole tree will look gorgeous!"

Tom Church, co-founder of LatestDeals.co.uk, says: “Christmas is undoubtedly an expensive time of year, what with presents, Christmas parties and cooking festive meals for the whole family. However, shopping at wallet-friendly brands like The Range and B&Q like Kirsty is a great way to keep costs down. This tree looks stunning and I can’t believe the decorations cost just £35!"
