Everything You Need To Know About Decorating Your Christmas Tree
Decorating a Christmas tree for the first time can feel daunting, since there are so many things to consider. Fortunately, there are some basic things you can consider while you are decorating, and which will ensure you get an excellent result.
Where Should I Put My Christmas Tree?
This is usually the first question you ask yourself before you put up your Christmas tree. Now, if you do not have too much space in your home, this question becomes all the more important.
It is always best to put a Christmas tree as close to a plug socket as possible, since you do not want any cables laying across the floor. If space is not as available in your home, you can easily choose a corner of your home and trim the tree on the back if required.
Please note that certain locations are not suitable for a Christmas tree - this includes near a radiator or window. You also want to place your tree in a much-used spot of your home such as your living room.
How Should I Hang My Lights On the Christmas Tree?
When you hang your lights on the Christmas tree, even distribution is everything. If your lights are more present in one part of the tree compared to another, then the entire balance of your decorated tree will be of.
The number of lights you need for your Christmas tree depends heavily on the size of your tree. However, some experts claim you can never have enough lights, only too little. So, if you are in doubt, simply purchase an extra batch to ensure you have enough string lights for your tree.
There are various types of lights you could use for your Christmas tree. However, if you need some new ones, be sure to look for so-called copper string lights. These copper options are usually more durable and are more subtle compared to other types.
How Do I Choose A Colour Scheme For My Christmas Tree?
Choosing an appropriate colour scheme is everything for a well-decorated Christmas tree. Fortunately, there are a bunch of popular colour schemes you can choose from that do not require much interference.
If you prefer the most traditional colour scheme, then you should use a combination of red, green, and gold tree decorations. When you look in the store for decorations in this colour scheme, you usually find them for the most affordable price around. Still, if you do not want to be overwhelmed by the warmth of those decorations, simply combine them with some white lights for a slight blue hue.
For those who like something a little more modern for their Christmas tree, there is the silver, blue and purple colour combination. With these colours, you can achieve something a little more modern, but still create the Christmas tree your friends and family will be jealous of.
Of course, some people prefer the minimalist approach these days. If you think less is more, then focus on a colour scheme with white and plain wooden decorations. While the latter may be more expensive than other decorations, they will look wonderful on any minimalist tree.
How Do I Hang My Baubles On The Christmas Tree?
The easiest way to hang your Christmas baubles on the tree is by starting on the inside of the tree. When you start on the outside, you will find it is much more difficult to hang additional baubles near the inside of your tree.
It is also recommended to choose some base decorations for your tree, which should have a plain colour and not be too ostentatious. So, if you have some cheap baubles laying around, they will be perfect. Once you have covered the inside of your tree, then you can focus on your more expensive baubles for the outside.
Finally, always use baubles in groups of three. By doing so, you will find it much easier to find the perfect balance for your tree. Of course, do not go overboard with the different types of baubles you hang on your tree, as it will easily get crowded. In addition to that, it is much harder to achieve a balance.
