I wallpaper my house with Christmas wrapping paper so it looks like Santa’s grotto

MUM Carly Lockie has Christmas covered — decking out the walls inside her family home with wrapping paper.

She starts the four-week job in November and even tapes the festive packaging over her kitchen cupboards.


Carly, 36, transforms her three-bedroom house with help from partner Mike, 40, her three children — Mayah, 15, Harmonie, ten, and Junior, five — and stepdaughter Kayleigh, 18.

They use 20 rolls costing 50p each and reckon the whole operation costs less than £15.

Cleaner Carly, of Bristol, said: “It’s like Santa’s grotto. Everyone I know loves it but they also think I’m batty.

“The younger kids bring their friends round to have a look.

"Mayah doesn’t want to ruin her street cred but she wants her room done too.

“The walls are just plain magnolia.

"When I take the wrapping paper down it feels like we’ve redecorated again.”

She added: “We never throw anything away.

"Last year’s wrapping paper was used to make Christmas cards for the elderly as there are a lot of care homes in our area.”
