Decking the halls and preparing your home for Christmas might seem like a mammoth task for some.
But now one Twitter user has revealed his nifty trick which will save tons of time and hassle when setting up a new Christmas tree.
Dylan McGuire, from Waterford in Ireland, shared the hack on Twitter, posting a photo of his tree wrapped in clingfilm.
He commented: ‘Wrapped my tree in cling film like this last year. This year it took seconds to open it with a knife and as I kept all the decorations on it.’

The hack comes after another social media user showed how to create a ‘firework effect’ on a Christmas tree.
Teana, from Melbourne, has received more than one million views on TikTok since posting her unconventional tinsel trick.
It involves wrapping tinsel around a single branch and then snipping off the excess with scissors.
She then continues to snip the strands of tinsel – and says the process only takes 30 minutes to do an entire tree.

‘I was skeptical at first but the end result looks amazing,’ one woman wrote.
‘So cute. I am obsessed,’ wrote a second.
Another mother-of-two who used to spend £800 on Christmas presents has revealed how she’s budgeted her family-of-four’s festive celebrations down to just £300.
Stacey Victoria, 35, a stay-at-home mother from Huddersfield, says has adopted a three-point plan to save money this Christmas – involving second-hand gifts, discounted supermarket items and homemade decorations.

The mother – who has managed to feed her family-of-four for £40 a week amid the cost of living crisis – explained: ‘We have had to cut back hugely as a family to be able to still try and keep the life we have and enjoy it.’
Instead of buying her two children a selection of new toys, the thrifty parent is now making the most of local charity shops and has purchased three second-hand presents for her eldest daughter for only £20.
She said: ‘I have grown up on car boot sales each and every Sunday since the age of four and now my girls do exactly the same. In the past, I’ve always made sure to search high and low in the charity shops as well.
‘But this year, I’ve used them more than ever. You’re not just buying and gifting second hand items, but you’re also donating to the charities who are undoubtedly struggling as well.’
