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:
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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!
