While these Christmas decorations can be hard to come by, some people take it into their own hands and get crafty.

A woman made her own Bluey Christmas decorations out of plywood. She first drew her design on the board, then cut out the figures and painted them.

She uploaded her nifty creation to TikTok, captioning it “Have a Very Bluey Christmas.”
