Mum leaves thousands in hysterics with her Christmas tree fail

An Australian mum has left the internet in stitches after sharing an image of her Christmas tree ‘fail’ with thousands.

Tracey, from Brisbane, posted a photo to the Kmart Inspired Homes Facebook group and said she misplaced the top of the tree while moving houses, but her young son was still eager to decorate the tree.

The end result looked quite unattractive and short, but others online thought differently and said it was ‘perfect’.

To describe the situation, Tracey outlined a humorous step-by-step guide regarding how to replicate the unconventional tree.

‘I have had many people ask for a tutorial video how to do your tree like this but I think a PDF step-by-step instructions guide will be sufficient… however I don’t have time for that so here you go,’ Tracey joked.

Mum: How did the Christmas tree end up so ‘sad’ looking? 

I have had many people ask for a tutorial video how to do your tree like this but I think a PDF step by step instructions guide will be sufficient… however I don’t have time for that so here you go’

1. Lose the top part of your tree in a house move. Preferably in April as you don’t have the opportunity to go back to your local waste collection and search through your garbage once you realise you have thrown it out

2. Have a son who wants to decorate the tree now and instead of waiting until you replace the tree

3. Allow your son to use every decoration you have collected over the few years to throw onto said tree

4. Sit back with a coffee for an hour in peace while your son is occupied decorating said tree

5. (This is the most important part of the steps) DO NOT look on Kmart inspired homes at everyone’s beautiful trees they have created.

6. Question your life choices.

To replicate the tree, Tracey joked to first deliberately lose part of it in April so you ‘don’t have the opportunity to go back to your local waste collection and search through the garbage once you realise you have thrown it out’.

Then have an impatient son and allow him to deck the tree with every ornament, tinsel and decoration collected over the years.

‘Step four: sit back with a coffee for an hour in peace while your son is occupied decorating said tree,’ she said.

‘You just won the internet and the best tree of 2020 my friend!’ one person joked.

‘That’s gold!! Love it and I bet he’s proud as punch of his handy work,’ another added.

A third said: ‘I’m kind of impressed, I thought it was meant to be an Easter egg.’

‘Perfectly imperfect just the way it should be,’ another said.

Tracey also placed stockings, reindeer decorations and baubles on the floor around the tree.
