Your Christmas tree is the centre piece of your entire festive season, so it needs to look its best.
However, lots of us just place our decorations on our tree without much thought – decorating a tree is easy right?
But to properly dress an impressive tree, you need some tips. It can be so simple to create a beautiful tree for your home, just follow these three simple tips.
If you are using an artificial tree, be sure to properly fluff out all of your pine needles before decorating.
Step 1: Hang Christmas Tree Lights
The lights are the backbone of a good tree, and their even distribution plays a large role in a well decorated tree.
Step 2: Add Christmas Garland
If you are interested in adding a garland to your tree, this is the perfect time to do so. Try and place it in the empty spaces between the lights, for a well balanced tree.
Step 3: Hang Christmas Tree Ornaments
Pick out your favourite tree ornaments and place them in prime positions on the tree first. Next, hang larger ornaments evenly throughout the tree. Then fill in the gaps between ornaments with medium and small sized ornaments. Don’t forget to add ornaments closer to the trunk to add depth.
Step 4: Top Off Your Tree
No tree would be complete without a star, angel or bow at the top. It is the pièce de résistance for your entire tree. Tradition dictates that the smallest person in your house needs to put the topper on, so be that you or your little one, be sure to pick something beautiful to adorn your tree.
