A MUM has been brutally trolled after sharing the simple decoration she’d made using her eldest kid’s empty Prime bottles.
Over the past few months, the energy drink Prime, made a social media sensation by YouTube stars KSI and Logan Paul, has become all the rage, especially amongst the younger generation.
One of those to know a little about this is mum Sophie Eyles whose eldest child appears to be just one of the numerous fans of the beverage.
As time went by, the parent noticed there were more and more empty bottles scattered around the family home.
But rather than chucking the out, Sophie came up with an idea, one then shared on the popular Extreme Couponing and Bargains UK group.
All chuffed with the outcome of her DIY project, the craft fanatic wrote: ”Sick of these prime bottles being left about or stored by my eldest, so decided to reuse them.
”I brought some cheap craft LED lights of Amazon and shuved them in the bottle [sic].”
According to the parent, you can also nab similar LED lights at other retailers, such as B&M and Poundland.
But whilst Sophie and her eight-year-old kid may be happy with the new, upcycled decoration, not everyone on Facebook was a fan.
The post soon racked up close to a whopping 4k likes on the platform, with over a thousand members of the group racing to share their thoughts.
Amongst those commenting were also people mocking the idea and insisting the LED decoration looked ”rubbish”.
One claimed Sophie’s idea wasn’t anything new, saying: ”Old news people have been doing this for ever now.”

”Crazy how bad things have got in uk ppl [people] decorating with rubbish [sic],” someone else added.
A third chimed in: ”Fire hazard as lamps. Bulbs will melt.the plastic especially if the lids r on please be careful [sic].”
Luckily, it wasn’t all negative, as heaps of fellow parents thanked Sophie for the idea – and some even shared their upcycled Prime bottles.
After being slammed, the mum, too, had a message for the trolls: ”To the boring people who are so offended by a plastic bottle your comments have kept me entertained all night so many thanks!
”If it makes you feel any better when the phase is done they will be recycled! And FYI I most definitely know how to use a bin.”
