Learn the tips that design professionals use when decorating a Christmas tree. When buying that real tree I would look to make sure it’s not only the size that you need. We have had artificial trees that are so fake looking and that the “needles” fall off after a year. Whether your tree is real or artificial you will want to make sure that is sturdy and can hold all those beautiful Christmas ornaments that you load on to it. Having a theme in mind will help if you need to purchase more decorations or even as you are sorting through what you may have. The farmhouse style has been in for a while so has a rustic Christmas tree theme.
In the last couple of years rose gold has been huge in the Christmas decor aisles of stores. The blinking lights give the tree a twinkling look adding to the magic of Christmas. When adding extra lights on, weave them in and out of the tree branches. Wearing gloves while doing this as well as the fluffing of the tree will help save your hands from scratches. A tip for knowing how many strains of lights are needed for a tree would be. The wire edge helps when weaving the ribbon in and out of the tree.
What I love to do is cut about 18 inches of ribbon and tuck it into the tree. Pushing the ribbon deep into the tree to help secure it.
Then, once the ribbon and lights are on, would be the perfect time to add the topper. The next step to decorating your Christmas tree would be filling any gaps there might be. To help fill in those gaps you can add pine floral picks, this is my favorite. Using picks will also give the tree more dimension as well as make it look fuller.
The picks will set nicely on lower branches without being secured. Another tip would be to add larger ornaments to fill these gaps. Go ahead and add him in by securing him to the tree using pipe cleaners or floral wire.
Under the tree in our living room, I like to add quilt padding, a couple of strings of lights, and top it with tulle.
