Christmas is coming: how to decorate your Christmas tree?

As Christmas approaches, traditionally, the fir tree enters our homes. As one beautifies one’s living room, the choice of the decor of the tree is essential.

3 simple tips to successfully decorate your tree:

1- Choose a theme:
You can rely on an object that you have spotted in a store, stay in the tradition by choosing red and green tones, opt for white that reminds the snow with a flocked fir tree for example, or harmonize your tree with the decor of your interior.

2-Observe an order:
 
a- Start by installing garlands of light (3 is a good number) if you want to illuminate the tree. When you have arranged them, you will see the remaining spaces to install the other elements of the decor. The arrangement of these garlands will guide the atmosphere of the decor. The garlands must intersect. Start installing them from the base to go up to the top. If your garlands are small, divide them with one at the base, one at the center and the last at the top.

b- Then hang balls and characters, making sure to highlight them. Finally, you can finish by placing some garlands that will bring beautiful reflections with the light. The balls will be placed by filling the holes, evenly, while the garlands will be arranged from bottom to top.

c- Install a star at the top of the tree to complete the decor.

d- Hide the fir tree’s foot with fabric, paper or other decorative element.

3- Harmonize the decor:

It is important to be careful not to superimpose too many colors or different objects. A beautiful fir tree will be harmonious with two or three different colors only. Do not just dress outside the tree, inhabit the space, inside the branches. Play with the depth.

The elements of the decor:

You can choose decorative objects from the trade or make your own decorations.

– A star (or a point) symbolizing the star of Bethlehem placed at the top of the tree
– The balls: colorful, shiny, decorated by hand, …
– The characters: angels, fathers, …
– Garlands: white, colorful, shiny, ribbons, pearls, feathers, angel hair …
