This “brilliant” Christmas hack will change the way you decorate your tree

It’s November, which means that for some, Christmas decorating season has officially begun. While it’s not hard to spend a small fortune on holiday decorations, one woman has shared her “brilliant” hack that could change the way you decorate your tree.

The woman, known as Londa Locs on TikTok, shocked not only her husband but thousands of viewers by revealing her secret to decorating a luxurious tree on a budget.

In her video, she shows off her newly decorated Christmas tree with what appear to be expensive metallic glass baubles.


The woman questions her husband and asks how much he thinks she paid for them. “We showed my husband the tree and he said it was very nice, very beautiful,” she says in the video. “And I thought, how much do you think I paid for those big blue ornaments?”

Her husband answers and says he thinks she paid $12.99 each for them. But to his surprise, she reveals that the beautiful ornaments are not quite what they seem.

How she did it

“I’ll take the decorations,” she says, laughing, before pulling out a small inflated balloon that’s inside her tree. “Now go get your balloons. But make sure you get the chrome balloons,” she added. “They look more real.”

Her hack surprised TikTok users. “This is brilliant and it looks fantastic! What a fantastic idea!” one person wrote, while another added: “This is absolutely BRILLIANT!!!!”

It didn’t take long for others to say they were already looking at “stealing the idea” for themselves.

“Thanks for this! Paying $8-15 for ONE ornament is crazy,” one person commented.

“Ohhh I’m saving money this year!! Thanks!” wrote another.

Where can you buy balloon “decorations”

Aside from looking good, TikTok users pointed out some other benefits of the “life-changing” balloon balloon hack.

“As a mother of a 15 month old, thanks for the suggestion!” one impressed mum commented, while another viewer added: “Bonus is you don’t have to store them all year.”

The woman said she bought the chrome balloons from Amazon, with a 50-pack costing $18.99.

Her hack also opened up a lot of questions from people who naturally wanted to know if they will actually last until Christmas.

“How do they stay inflated the whole time the tree is up? Question for those who have their tree up all month,” one person asked. Another asked: “Do they shrink or pop from the heat from the lights at all?”

In response to the questions, someone else suggested coating the balloons with a special spray to keep them inflated until the big day.
