A $25 Kmart throw is doing the rounds on social media, with shoppers fawning over the budget homewares item that looks just like another throw that’s three times the price.

Kmart’s natural cotton Aruba Throw features a simple pattern and oversized tassels which is very similar to this Antique White Tufted Cotton Throw available for $79 from Temple and Webster.

Happy customers who have bought the Kmart version have praised the quality in their reviews, saying, “Super cheap and great quality. Bought 4 throws for what it would have cost for one elsewhere.”

Another wrote, “A beautiful quality throw. Looks amazing on bed or couch- literally quarter the price of others of the same quality & look. Buy this!”

Melbourne woman @my_friend_jackies_house shared a photo of her Kmart throw over her bed on Instagram, writing, “The @kmartaus cotton aruba throw is the best $25 I’ve spent in a long time... LOVE it”.

Another woman on Facebook said, “Love my new throw,” but not everyone was a fan, with one customer writing on Facebook, “I’m disappointed in it. It doesn’t wash up well at all. The tassels look like mop heads now.”

It would look good paired with the Kmart rattan bedhead hack, for a cheaper version of this bedroom set up featuring a $120 Marsala Natural Throw from Adairs.

Kmart bedhead hack

The rattan bedhead hack came from a woman in Perth who transformed two $69 Kmart room screens into a bedhead that looks a lot like ones that are normally worth hundreds of dollars more.

"I wanted a rattan headboard that fit a king bed, but I was not keen to part with so much money...so I hacked the room dividers," she wrote on the Kmart DIY and Hacks Facebook page.

"I separated all the panels. I inverted one and used that for the middle panel then put 2 panels either side of it and joined them with cable ties (very secure).

"I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. When it's placed behind the bed you can't even tell where the miss match pattern is."
