Christmas In July: Tips And Tricks For A Beautiful Tree

Christmas Tree Magic

Have you ever wondered how to get the perfect Christmas tree? I am going to share some tips and tricks that I have picked up or been taught over the years on how to make my Christmas tree look it's best each year.

  • Always fluff out your branches the best you can. This will create a fuller look. Don't be afraid of any empty spaces, we can fill those later.
  • Hanging small mirrors inside the tree will help reflect the Christmas lights outward creating the appearance of more lights.
  • Use a theme to make a tree more interesting and less overwhelming to look at.
  • To create more depth and fullness in the tree, use ornaments inside the tree, not just on the outer edges, to draw the eyes in futher.
  • Wrapping empty boxes to place under the tree not only adds decoration, but it gets everyone curious and interested to know what is under your tree this year.
  • Using multiples of the same ornament to create a main focus within the tree will help showcase the one of a kind ornaments, keeping the tree from being to all random ornaments. So buy the dozen or so round ornaments.
  • Running lights up and down deeper within the tree will help illuminate the tree from within and add extra sparkle to the mirrors.
  • Above all, have fun while decorating your tree. Enjoying the process will make it even more fun to showcase with pride. Each tree is a unique work of art.
