Anyone can throw some lights on a tree, but a beautifully decorated Christmas tree can light up the holiday spirit of everyone who sees it. Make sure your tree looks exquisitely classic by decorating it very well.
Christmas event occurs once a year so spice things up by decorating your tree with the following easy guide.
1. Test your Christmas lights
Before you hang them on your tree. Plug your Christmas lights into an outlet. Ensure that you don’t have any burnt-out bulbs.
2.Put lights on your tree
Make sure to do this before putting ornaments on your tree. LED lights are best for live trees as they do not heat up too quickly. Wrap strands of lights around the top of the tree and work your way down to the base of the tree.
Put your first light at the very top of the tree to begin. This light will shine on the star, angel, or snowflake that you will add later. Make sure you add some shiny colors to make your tree more fancy.
3.Secure your light strands by weaving them
Divide your tree into 3 sections. Each section will have its own lights. Begin at the base of the tree and weave the lights up through the branches to the top of the tree and back down to the base.
4. Connect your light to an extension
Connect your light strands to an extension cord and plug it into a nearby outlet.
5. Wrap the base of your tree
Wrap the base of the tree in plastic. The plastic will collect any needles that fall off your tree. Cover the plastic with a festive Christmas tree skirt.
These skirts add to the beauty of your tree and also keep the tree’s needles from collecting on your floor.
6. Hang your ornaments
Hang your ornaments on the tree. Look for branches that are wider apart so that your ornaments won’t rest on lower branches.
Hang heavier ornaments further up on branches, closer to the trunk of the tree. The tree is strongest near the trunk and can bear more weight.
Hang ornaments near lights to highlight certain ornaments. This works particularly well with shiny bulb, glass, or metal ornaments as these types are the most reflective.
Spread ornaments evenly throughout the tree. Make sure not to hang too many ornaments on each branch. If a branch starts to get too weighed down, ornaments could fall off or the branch could break.
Add additional decorations to beautify your tree.These extras can include
- strands of popcorn
- and candy canes.
7. Add Tinsel
Tinsel makes your tree glitter. Hang tinsel near lights for the shiniest look possible. Be mindful with the amount of tinsel you place on your tree. Too much tinsel could take away from the beauty of your ornaments.
For a more modern look, buy colored tinsel rather than the traditional gold and silver.
8. Add decoration of your choice
Add the star (or decoration you wish to have at the top of your tree ) Make sure that it is secure and not crooked.
9. Unleash your tree beauty
Turn off the lights in your house. Admire the festive tree you have created and be happy of your feats.
I wish you all merry Christmas in advance.
