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.

ANDREW LLOYD/KENNEDY NEWSCarly says: ...It’s like Santa’s grotto. Everyone I know loves it but they also think I’m batty' '/ '

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.
