Epic Formula on How To Decorate A Christmas Tree
1. How to Decorate a Christmas Tree to Look Full
For artificial Christmas trees, you must take time to fluff all the branches. This is a tedious and time-consuming step. However, the results will give you a fuller and more life-like tree.
Make sure you wear gloves to protect your hands from all the prickly branches.
Gardening gloves work best for this step.
Start fluffing from the base and work your way up to the top of the tree.
To fluff your tree, you will want to fan out every single branch, either upward or downward. A uniform direction gives your tree a cohesive look.
It’s best to have an image of a tree for reference.
Fluffing the branches is the best way how to make your Christmas tree look full.
Tip: If you decide on snow flocked tree, it’s best to fluff the branches downward to give it a weighted appearance from the snow.
2. Choose a Theme
Every professional tree carries a theme. The tree is the focal point in any space during the holidays, so choose an idea that compliments the surrounding decor.

3. Add Christmas Lights Onto The Tree
Always put the lights on before adding any ornaments if you decide on a real tree. Placing lights after decorating is very difficult and cumbersome.
Make sure you add lights over and then under the branches as you move toward the crown of the tree. This method helps evenly disperse the lights all over the tree.
To save time and money, consider purchasing a pre-lit tree. There are many styles and sizes to fit any theme.

4. Christmas Ornaments
Choose Christmas decorations that will compliment your tree. Aim for different shapes and sizes to add texture and contrast.
Hang your more oversized ornaments first and place them more toward the tree’s center. Then, fill in the rest of the space by hanging more miniature knickknacks onto the branches.
5. Christmas Ribbon
Add more appeal to the aesthetics of your tree by layering the ribbon.
Wired edge ribbons make it easier to make loops and rolls to better shape your layered ribbon.
6. Tree Topper
Choose the perfect Christmas topper to compliment your tree. Decide on one that matches your overall theme.
However, do not forget your tree height. Measure the distance from the tree’s crown to the roof.
Trust me, do not fall in love with a topper that will not fit. No topper will ever compare to your first choice.
