Christmas Tree Decorations

Points to consider when choosing the best christmas tree decorations

1. The size of the tree.

The size of the tree is important as it will determine the decorations you purchase. Huge trees need much larger and many decorations. This will level the tree out and make it look splendid. For smaller trees, you will need smaller and few decorations.




2.Location of the tree.

The place where the tree will be placed is also very important. This is because it will determine the strategic positioning of the decorations. If the tree is placed in a way that it can be viewed from all sides, then the decorations should be well distributed. But if part of the tree is hidden, then that part can do without decorations.




  • Price or cash required. You should know what you can afford and what you can’t. It doesn’t mean that those that do not have much money will not have the best Christmas tree decorations. If this is your case, you can even make your own decorations that will stand out as being unique. You do not have to be very artistic to do this. There are very many guidelines that will help you get the decorations that you desire.

All in all, in as much as picking the right tree for your home is important, picking the right decorations for that Christmas tree is also very important. Also ensure that you put your decorations in a kit to be used in the coming year.

Decorating Christmas tree

 Christmas-tree-decorations-ideaOnce you get a Christmas tree, whether from the shop or you cut it down from your backyard, one thing is necessary, trimming. There is no Christmas tree that does not need to be trimmed. The level of trimming might differ depending on how well the tree was taken care of but all trees will need some kind of trimming. This is why it is very important that during Christmas time you have your Christmas tree decorating  kit nearby. This kit should have all the necessary decorations and the trimming equipment.

You do not need to be a professional designer to make your tree beautiful. And it is much better to decorate it on your own as you know how well your family will take it. Here are the basic instructions on how to trim the tree.


  • Start by ensuring that the trimming kit has all the tools you need.
  • You should neatly trim all the branches, even the ones that look perfect. This will give them a good shape and the branches will also be on the same level.
  • For the branches that have dried up, cut them off completely so that the entire tree is green. You should put the tree in a pool of salty water so that it lasts longer.
  • As you start decorating, always start from the bottom going up. This is very important since the bottom has a wider surface and so most of the decorations go there.
  • It is also tradition that the star is placed last after the tree has been decorated.
  • When putting the Christmas lights, ensure that you wrap it around the tree first before plugging it in.
  •  Ensure that the tree is not very far from the socket so that you do not have a hard time connecting it to the socket.
  • After all the decorations are set, close your Christmas tree decoration kit and enjoy a beautiful tree that you made.
