“Snowman from plastic cups. My little one very excited,” she wrote.
“Total cost me around £10 except the lights inside.”
The incredible design features three “snow balls” made from paper cups – which the mum revealed she snapped up in Home Bargains.
The creative parent explained she followed a tutorial on YouTube.

In the video, the woman can be seen stapling the plastic cups together in a circle to begin with, before adding layer after layer until the cups form a snow ball shape.
This is repeated three times to make each section of the body.

It appears the mum added flashing lights as well as decorating the festive snowman with a Santa hat and a scarf as well as using bits and bobs to make his eyes, nose, mouth and buttons.
The mum explained she spent £10 on the plastic cups, revealing she already had the flashing lights at home.
And other parents couldn’t get enough of the DIY snowman, with one commenting: “Clever clever lady lucky daughter well done.”
