I was quoted £200 for my festive door – I did it myself with B&M buys and I'm so impressed…but trolls say it looks cheap | The Sun

A WOMAN has revealed that she was quoted over £200 for a festive door – so decided to do it herself.

The savvy DIY fan explained that she nabbed cheap buys from B&M, The Range and eBay, to create her own door display.

But social media users are divided at the festive display – while some thought it looked amazing, and were desperate to do the same, not everyone was as kind, and mean trolls said it looked ‘cheap’.

Showing off her DIY creation online, the woman, who is from Stoke-on-Trent, took to social media and shared a video with the caption “Door garland made by myself for around £60, was quoted over £200.”

She then explained: “Quoted over £200 so [I] had a go myself for around £60.

“Well happy.”

There were even bows and ribbons, as well as a cheeky Elf on the Shelf.

She later explained: “[I] cable tied everything so kids don’t pull them off.”

However, social media users were divided at the woman’s display – while many thought it looked amazing, not everyone was as keen. 

One person said: “Absolutely magical! I love it so much! I’ve got to copy.” 

Another added: “Absolutely brilliant.”

A third commented: “Looks amazing.”

However, not everyone was as kind about the display.

One mean troll wrote: “Looks cheap, sorry but it does.”
