Tips for Decorating your Tree


Everyone has their own style of tree and with that their own style of decorating it.  My tree is by no means a designer tree, but I have picked up a few tips over the years to help it pack a little more punch:

  1. Let the Tree Rest– If you have a real tree, let is sit for a day or so before adding the lights and ornaments.  This will let the limbs fall into their final place so there aren’t any holes created later on.
  2. Create Depth– Make sure to place some ornaments towards the center of the tree and some on the ends of the limbs to create more depth to the eye.
  3. Use Coordinating Ornaments– Your ornaments don’t have to match, and in my opinion shouldn’t, but they should coordinate in coloring and style to be most visually appealing.
  4. Wrap Each Branch in Lights– It takes quite a bit of time, so take breaks, but wrapping each branch in lights instead of just draping them will allow the tree to shine like a pre-lite tree.  Trust me its worth it!
