Decorating the Christmas tree is an honored and loved tradition in many households. The secret to an amazing Christmas tree decoration is to decorate it in layers. If you are not sure how to decorate the Christmas tree this year, check out our suggestion.
Start by hanging the Christmas tree lights. Choose a strand color that matches your tree, so the wire will not be visible. To achieve a more dynamic look, we suggest to illuminate the tree from the inside out. Start at the base of the trunk and work your way up, wrapping lights around every major branch, moving from the trunk to the tips and back. You can pick any type of lights for your Christmas tree – traditional incandescent lights, LED lights, globe or bubble lights. You can even try to mix and match different types of lights. Try white lights for the background and add colored lights for the outer parts of the Christmas tree. Also, experiment with the different lighting schemes, until you find the one you like the most.
After you’ve hung the lights, add some Christmas tree garlands. Start at the top of the tree and work your way down, slowly increasing the amount of garland between each wave. Try to use about two strands of garland for every vertical foot of the tree. Use a variety of garlands – from plain to fancier. Thin, beaded garlands look best if you hang them from branch to branch, while thicker foil or ribbon garlands look better if you wrap them loosely around the entire tree.
The next step is to hang the Christmas tree ornaments. Place your favorite ornaments in prime positions first. Space the larger ornaments evenly around the tree. Then, fill in the spaces between them with medium and small-size ornaments. To create depth, hang some of the ornaments close to the trunk of the Christmas tree. To finish the decoration, hang icicles.
A beautifully decorated Christmas tree will create a wonderful holiday atmosphere in your home and bring cheer to everyone who sees it. Gather inspiration from the many suggestions available online or realize your own ideas. FloatProject wishes you happy decorating.
