Have you ever wondered the best way to decorate a Christmas tree?
Today I thought I would share some tips how I decorate my tree!
I’m sure you are so busy!
So let’s get going! I have a few decorating tips to share on how to decorate a tree quickly!
I’m all about saving time, money, and if I can repurpose that makes me so happy!
An artificial tree is what I use in our home. It last much longer than a real tree, I can put it up earlier , I don’t need to water it and I don’t have to buy it each year! Also no tree needles!
Pre lite trees are great time saver!
My tree has three pieces!
I like to set my tree up at least a day before I decorate it, so I can fluff the branches.
Adding some snow gives my tree a nice glow! I use the spray snow.
Make sure to check your lights before you start decorating!
I add clear ornaments to the inside of the tree for added glow! The clear bulbs really help to luminate the lights!
Next I start with a filler. This filler is called a horse hair filler. I used green but you can use any color. A craft store or fabric store should have it. You can also order from Amazon. Oh and its not real horse hair!
After, I begin to hang my largest ornaments. I start at the bottom of the tree and work my way up. Using the next size I continue up the tree and using the smallest bulbs at the top of the tree.
The next thing I add to the tree is the ribbon. Cutting the ribbon into pieces saves on the ribbon, it’s easier to work with, and you get a lot of bang for the buck so to speak. Just place folded in the tree.
I fill in the ribbon again starting at the bottom and working my way up the tree filling in the areas around the tree.
Next I’ll add my fillers such as sprigs, beads, flowers or whatever I use for fillers.
My tree topper goes on last and don’t forget the skirt in case you didn’t put it under before you began decorating the tree!
So adding all the little tricks of fluffing, adding the horse hair, the clear bulbs near the inside of the tree by a light. We added the largest ornaments at the bottom, working our way up to the top with the next in size ornaments. Next we added some ribbon! Also ribbon that has a little sparkle helps with the illumination of the tree! We added our fillers in last! I always add it to any hole in the tree.
Our tree is all done!!!
It’s pretty quick if it’s all planned out!
I hope this helps and you enjoy the season!
See you next time !!!
