How to decorate ideal Christmas tree?


Visitors: 203

Christmas commences usually with decorations displayed everywhere. Christmas is not like other festivals and feels incomplete without decorations and without any Christmas tree in homes or at offices. There's nothing like a well decorated Christmas tree which creates the warm sensation of festivity and spreads joy everywhere. Too much decoration or less decoration creates a lot of difference in between perfect Christmas tree and a disaster tree.

There are so various things that can be used to decorate your tree such as lights, few baubles, tinsel, red ribbon and the angel on the top of your Christmas tree. But you should do everything in a limit and be cautious not to overdo it.

One important and simple tip is to add decorations on the place of Christmas tree or on a cardboard. This makes the tree to move easily without damaging the floor or any other objects. You must be sure that all branches are extended out properly pointing a little upward and try to spread decorations equally on the tree. The general rule is to put 100 lights in an area of 1 foot. So, a tree of 7ft would look great with around 700 lights. Some artificial Christmas trees are now available with built in fiber optic lights that really create attractive look and save the problem of arranging lights.

Next is to decide the theme you may like to go with your decorations. To create a theme is really a good way. Whether you choose, angel theme or the turquoise theme, your tree will look very attractive and professional. Choose different size of decoration items, large and small according to your theme. Sparkly or plain turquoise baubles create a charming look on Christmas tree. If you like to hang some heavy items on the tree, you must look to get floral wire.

You can also apply tinsel or ribbon on the tree in orderly manner. Be sure you wrap the ribbons deep in the tree same as to the corner edge of the branches to give an even look and stability to the ribbon from sliding off. While using the ribbons or tinsel, wrap it round in S shape covering the maximum of the tree which would give it nice visibility too. Now you can place the angel on top of your Christmas tree.

After all the hard work, now you have an attractive Christmas tree to display with pride or you can go with pre-lit pre-decorated artificial Christmas tree available at Balsam Hill’s website.
