Christmas Tree Decorating Tips

It starts with the lights …

  • Put lights on the Christmas tree first, then garland or ribbon, then your ornaments.
  • When adding lights, start at the branches near the base of the tree, wrapping lights from the center out toward the tips of the branches.
  • Place ornaments and other decorations at varying depths on the branches, not just on the tips of the branches, to add depth and interest.

Start by arranging basic, solid color balls closer to the trunk and middle of the branches, evenly spaced out, then mix in your more special, one-of-a-kind ornaments between the basic ornaments from the center toward the tips of the branches so they are evenly spaced.
