WITH Christmas just a few weeks away, most of us have started decorating our homes – whether it’s putting up the tree or looking for the lights.
But this year one festive fan decided to get clever and make her own DIY Christmas decor using hundreds of orbeez – but despite all the effort and spending more than £25, things didn’t go to plan.
The hilarious fail was shared on TikTok by Angela Evans Ludwig (@angiebaby7609) and has since gone viral, racking up 4.2 million views in less than a week.
At the beginning of the clip, the festive season enthusiast could be seen demonstrating a large glass vase filled with bright orbeez balls and colorful Christmas candies.
She then proceeded to pour in a bowl full of water – but with a rather soupy concoction, Angela hurried to get more liquid.
”It looks like Pissmas,” he hubby chuckled in the background.
Desperate to fix the disaster with a wooden spoon, Angela cried: ”No, it looks like s**t.
“It’s supposed to drive everything, God…”
With the little orbeez balls on the bottom and the candy floating on top, the old man only made matters worse by saying, ”It looks like oatmeal.”
Looking at the failure, Angela quickly retorted, “That’s why I buy s**t.”
A little while later, however, the orbeez absorbed all the water and began to expand – but the joys did not last long, as they soon began to overflow.
”It went down hill after that,” Angela cried.

Social media users flocked to comment to explain to Angela why things went so wrong, with one writing: “You have to soak them hours ahead of time. health!”
Someone else wondered: ”why didn’t you grow the orbees first… like how on earth did you think this world worked.”
Another agreed, adding: “She’s going to regret the amount of orbeez she added like 1/2 cup would probably be enough for that vase in the morning.”
“Maybe read the instructions lol,” suggested a fourth – a little too late though.
