Read our step by step guide to learn how to decorate a Professional looking Christmas Tree. Decorating for Christmas can be a much fun as the actual day itself. If you want to go all out, pick a room where you can incorporate multiple displays. Make sure to use the same color and theme throughout to complete the look.
How to Decorate A Professional Looking Christmas Tree
Organize your ornaments into 5 groups (Extra Large, Large, Medium & Small). Have your ornaments organized and ready to go before decorating.
Start decorating with largest ornaments and work your way down to the smallest ornaments. Decorate one side at a time, breaking the tree up into four different sections. Make sure to evenly space out ornaments as you work. Hide larger ornaments closer to the inside of the tree. Use decor objects, other than ornaments to add dimension. Ideas for decor objects are painted branches, pine cones, leaves, flowers or red berries. Get creative with your decor and create your own or visit your local craft store.
Fill any empty spaces with small ornaments or decor objects. See Christmas Tree infographic. Pick a Christmas tree topper in relation to the size of the tree. You don’t want a small star on a 10-foot tree and vice versa.
How to Decorate a Christmas Tree with Ribbon
If you are using Ribbon as a part of your decor put the ribbon on first before the ornaments. Start from the top and have the ribbon wrap around the tree to the bottom. Secure the ribbon to the tree branches and wrap the ribbon around the branch. Make sure to pull out the ribbon from the branches. Check out this video below on how to drape ribbon across your tree.
Theme Ideas for Christmas Trees
• Use white lights with multi-colored ornaments
• Go for a Retro look by using bubble and old-school Christmas Lights. Offset all the color with silver, white or gold retro ornaments.
• Pick colors to match the room you plan on putting the Christmas Tree
• Royal blue, green & red ornaments with white lights.
• Pick one color and pair it with 2 other metallic colors.
Should I get a Real or Fake Christmas Tree?
Getting a real Christmas Tree can be a lot of fun for the whole family and a tradition for many people. Having a real Christmas Tree creates a beautiful aroma that will last for weeks. Typically a real Christmas Tree should last about 6 weeks in your home. As much fun as it can be to get a real tree, a perfect shape can be hard to find. With a fake Christmas tree, you will have a consistent shape and it is easier to decorate, plus you can use year after year.
