Today we present you the best tips to decorate a Christmas tree. The secret to decorating a beautiful Christmas tree is simple: Style and mix of colors! One of the best things about the Christmas season is undoubtedly the decoration of the Christmas tree. In each house you can see trees adorned with lights, garlands and ornaments. Decorating a tree together at Christmas is a family tradition in many homes. Decorations in the past consisted of homemade ornaments and popcorn garlands, but today's decorations range from crystal ornaments to hand-made crafts and many twinkling lights.
Tips for placing the lights of the Christmas tree
Choose a good place for your tree
It does not matter if your tree is real or artificial, the first thing you should consider is the location of the tree. Ideally, it should be close to a socket and furniture can be rearranged if necessary to prevent children and their clumsy family members from ruining their festive creation.
Hang the lights of your tree
The second step is to add lights. The lights usually come in wire strands. You can find variations of threads of different colors like white or black green. Choose a color of the thread that matches that of your tree so that the cable does not stand out. Start at the base of the tree and move upward, wrapping the lights around each branch, starting from the trunk to the tip.
The three most popular types of Christmas lights to choose from when decorating your tree are the following.
Traditional incandescent lights: these Christmas tree lights come in a variety of sizes and colors and are the most popular type of tree lights. They warm the branches of a real tree, which will release the aroma of pine in the room.
LED lights: these Christmas tree lights are one of the novelties in Christmas decoration unlike traditional incandescent lights and do not produce heat. They are usually more expensive, but they are fireproof. The best thing of all is that they are completely safe so you can decorate a Christmas tree with LED lights without having any worry.
Lights in the form of light bulbs: these lights for the tree come in many sizes. They look like colored balls on the tree, and although they have a softer glow than the mini lights, the light they produce covers a larger area on the tree.
We advise you to experiment with different lighting schemes until you find one that you like. A good idea is to mix and match lights. For example, the most common idea is to use white or clear lights with colored lights.
Add ornaments and garlands
There are no firm rules for decorating a Christmas tree when it comes to Christmas ornaments and garlands. To prevent the branches from bulging between tightly garlanded garlands, start at the top of the tree and continue to circle the tree down as you go through the branches. You can wrap the tree or use light garlands that hang down.
To prevent the decoration from being too abundant and remove the attention of the same tree, decorate yours with a variety of less thick garlands, from simple to elegant. The fine garlands and beads are best seen hanging from one branch to another. In contrast, the thicker ones, made of ribbon or garlands of glossy paper, are best wrapped around the entire tree.
We advise you to consider making a garland yourself. In our Christmas Decoration section you can find a wide variety of ideas. The color and shape of the decorations depend on personal tastes so unleash your imagination when choosing your Christmas decorations.
