She turned two old space hoppers into giant gold bells to hang in her front door decorations – but not everyone was impressed.

Using gold spray paint, she covered the Spider-Man toy, tracing the holes and lines and adding a red bow for the finishing touch.

Sharing a video of her creation, she wrote: “DIY giant Christmas bells for the Christmas door. So today I started making pieces for the front door. Last year I made some giant balls out of the kids’ toy balls and I LOVED THEM.”

But despite Stacey’s enthusiasm, not everyone appreciated her creative genius.

“I woke up this morning to many of you writing to me saying, ‘Stace, your Christmas bells suck.’ I’m laughing because I thought they were really good and I was like, ‘Yeah, I smashed them again. “I made some great Christmas bells,” she said in her story.

“And you’re all like ‘What is this Stacey, this sucks’. “That really appealed to me,” laughed the TV star.

“Look, I think this is a really good lesson. Beauty is clearly in the eye of the beholder, firstly. And secondly, not every craft is a winner. Not every craft ends up looking great.”

“And a lot of you say to me, ‘Stace, if I made it look stupid, why do you make everything look so nice?'”

“Well, I clearly don’t! Sometimes people love them and they work, and sometimes they don’t!” She laughed.

“I still think they look good and make sense when they’re on the front door next to all the other Christmas things.”

“But to be honest, I thought they looked good anyway, so I’m obviously a bit delusional.”

Stacey recently showed fans how she created a giant nutcracker, saving herself hundreds of pounds.

The Sort Your Life Out presenter, 33, explained that every time she saw a giant nutcracker in stores it came with an inflated price tag.

She decided to take matters into her own hands and built her own home using bargain-basement items, including three buckets, some gutters and pipe insulation.

In a clip posted on InstagramThe mother of five shows the journey from start to finish – and it’s no surprise she’s “proud” of the end results.

She captioned the video: “I made a giant nutcracker that’s taller than me and Joe and almost reaches the ceiling.”

“I really love him – we called him Neil! It consists of three buckets, some guttering, and some pipe insulation – and it was SUPER simple.”

She goes on to say that every time she sees a giant nutcracker, “it weighs hundreds of pounds or looks sooo complicated.”

“So I hope this inspires anyone who wants to build one to grab a bucket and get started,” she continued.

“I need to think of a way to weigh him down so he can go outside to be displayed at the front door this year.”
