“Just a little hack for the people that don’t want to spend hours ‘fluffing their tree’ to make it look lush,” she wrote, sharing a photo of her own Christmas tree in a popular Kmart hacks group on Facebook.

“I always wrap a garland through mine, to hide any gaps. Then minimal fluffing before decorating.”

Her revelation quickly received hundreds of likes with the trick being dubbed ‘genius’.

“That is a great idea as it took me about an hour to fluff mine,” one person lamented.

“You’re a genius,” another commented, while a third said, “great idea!”.
