Mum praised for making entire Christmas tree dedicated to Aldi’s Kevin the Carrot
HE'S the must-have plush toy kids are desperate to get their hands on – and now one mum has taken her children's love of Kevin the Carrot to entirely new (and festive) extremes.
That's right, if you're lucky enough to have amassed a fair few of Aldi's sell-out toys over the years then you can actually turn them into Christmas decorations for your tree -if your kids can bear to part with them for a few weeks.
Sharing a photo of her impressive festive creation on the Facebook group Extreme Couponing & Bargains UK last year, the mum wrote: "£35 tree from ASDA – decorated it a bit different this year!
"All carrots were collected from Aldi over the past three years."
Along with the giant cuddly toy sitting next to the tree, the mum has 16 of the carrots hanging on her snowy artificial tree with bits of string she'd attached – including Aldi's Russell Sprout as a topper.
And if that wasn't enough, the mum also managed to bag ASDA's snowy Christmas tree which shoppers have said is just as lifelike as a real one.
Since she shared the picture online last week, the mum's post has racked up over 12,000 "likes" and 1,800 comments.
One user replied: "You were lucky – can't get the Aldi toys. Your tree looks fantastic. Happy Christmas!"
Another added: "I actually love that idea, it's so awesome."
Referencing how much Kevin the Carrots get put on eBay for THOUSANDS, a third joked: "That tree is worth a fortune."
For more festive inspiration, this mum made an adorable Minnie Mouse Christmas wreath for just £7.
And boozy mums are turning their empty wine bottles into incredible Christmas trees.
