So yesterday I finally got the Xmas tree up. I love decorating the tree, it’s so therapeutic! Behind every good Christmas tree there is a precision plan. Take ours for instance:
1). Assemble the Christmas tree, and place in the desired position.
2). Plump out those flat Xmas tree branches – don’t be scared to go BIG with those mean fur branches!
3). Look at your pile of last years Christmas tree decorations and amaze yourself on those little cute Xmas decks you forgot you had!
4). Unravel your Christmas tree lights and ensure they all work! We bought our new Xmas tree lights from Argos. Once checked, arrange them on your tree. Tip: it’s far easier to arrange your lights when they’re switched on – as it’s easier to see where any dark areas of the tree are!
(Please note, our lights flash on and off – hence half the tree looking ‘unlit’).
5). Once your happy with the lights, you can start to decorate your Christmas tree. Tip: it’s often easier to sort the Xmas decks in to matching groups, as it allows you to visually see how many of each decoration you have. Our decorations are old. Most of them are either from Marks & Spencer or House of Fraser, whilst most of the baubles were bought out of cheapness from various stores.
6.) Structure and mix and match each area of your tree. Have fun decorating your Christmas tree, get the kids involved perhaps?! Tip: Do not place large baubles too near the top of your Christmas tree.
7.) Once you’ve used up all your Xmas tree decorations, stand back and admire!
Isn’t she beautiful?!
