Woman Creates Christmas Tree Out Of Her Dirty Laundry And We’re Inspired

Ok we'll admit it. Sometimes we let our dirty laundry pile get a bit out of hand.

But we're not the only ones, as Australian mum Jessi Roberts had the same problem, and thought of the most genius solution.


Seeing as Christmas is only a matter of weeks away (yes, we said it), Jessi decided to spruce up her pile of clothes by turning it into a festive decoration.

Piling the clothes high on top of each other so that it resembled the shape of a Christmas tree, Jessi popped a star at the top to complete the makeshift laundry tree.


"The best way to avoid doing the washing - turn it into a Christmas tree," she said. "It's free. I'll wash this after Christmas or maybe the 'elf on the shelf' can help me."

This sounds so much more fun than simply washing everything. We wouldn't advise leaving the laundry quite that long though...

Jessi shared the tree with the hashtag #mumhack, although, to be honest, we think it's not just mums who could benefit.

And proving that it's not just us and Jessi who are a little on the lazy side, the post has since gone viral online, with flocks of people claiming they've got unintentional laundry trees of their own.

After being shared on Facebook page Budget 101, with the caption: "Would you look at that, all decorated for the holidays," Jessi's invention now has over 9,500 'likes' and 3,500 comments, and has amassed 12,000 shares.

People were quick to tag their partners and roomies, with one joking: "Could have a tree in every room," while another added: "See I'm being festive totally not just avoiding laundry."

A third joined in, writing: "I have solved the laundry issue lol."

While another joked: "I'm going for the deconstructed washing tree this season."
