It’s the most wonderful time of the year, and your Christmas tree should be equally as wonderful. Take tree décor to the next level this holiday season with stunning ornaments, festive lights, and spirited ribbons or garlands. Our tree-trimming collection encompasses a variety of holiday aesthetics, ranging from traditional to whimsical. Here are some tips and tricks for transforming your tree into the finest tannebaum in all the land!
Step 1: Hang Festive Lights
When adding lights to the tree, we suggest starting at the bottom of the trunk and working your way up. Wrap strings around each major branch, weaving from the trunk to the end and back. For a classic look, stick with white or clear lights. If you’re feeling a little more whimsical, add multicolored strands or strings that feature shaped icons like stars or candy canes.
Step 2: Add Spirited Garland
Draping garland on your tree is a quick and easy way to add some flair. We recommend decorating the top of the tree first and increasing the amount of garland between each wave as you work your way down. Thin beads and strands can be displayed branch to branch, while ribbon or foil garlands look best wrapped loosely around the whole tree. If you have any pets, make sure they do not chew or ingest any garland or string to avoid unexpected trips to the vet.
Step 3: Display Stunning Ornaments
Now it’s time for the final step in the decorating process! If you have any matching ornament sets, put them on before other baubles so they can be properly dispersed. Hang heavy ornaments near the tree trunk on sturdy branches, while lighter ones can be closer to the bough tips.
