A CRAFTY mum spent hours wrapping her entire son’s bedroom in wrapping paper – to convince him the Elf on the Shelf was real.
Charlotte Preston, 27, decided to step up her festive antics in a bid to reassure Conrad, eight, that the elves were monitoring his behaviour in the run up to Christmas.
Charlotte, from Lancashire, had used Elf on the shelf pranks for the past three years to entertain her son, so decided to take things to the next level to ensure the ruse continued.
She wanted to show Conrad that his elves, Noelle and Buddy, were watching his every move, so decided to wrap his entire bedroom in wallpaper.
Charlotte roped her brother in to help her, after being inspired by seeing a similar prank online.
She said: “I saw a tree covered in wrapping paper that someone had done and blamed on their elf on the shelf, so I knew I had to give it a go myself.
"Because Conrad is currently having his bedroom decorated, a lot of the furniture was already out of the way, so myself and my brother decided to wrap it up.
"It took us a total of five hours, one broken tape dispenser and cost £7 due to us using five rolls of wrapping paper.
"I have definitely outdone myself in comparison to the other years I have done this – it was definitely the most extreme!"
Charlotte confirmed Conrad was shocked when he saw his redecorated bedroom – and he’d been on his best behaviour ever since.
Plus this woman threatened to divorce her husband after he covered their entire kitchen in wrapped paper.
Meanwhile parents are raving about a £10 felt tree which they say keeps kids entertained for hours.
And shoppers are snapping up Spice Girls themed decorations saying it’s what they’ve always wanted for their tree.
