Back in September, I was able to spend time with the designers at Caryl’s Christmas Shop just as they were starting to unpack the many, many boxes of Christmas decor that had arrived at the store. Let me tell you – I wanted to dive into those boxes with both arms!
You can apply all of these tips to any style of tree decor!
Step 1: Fluff the tree (if artificial) and add lights (if your tree isn’t prelite).
Step 2: Add the garland.
-Start about 1/5th the way down from the top of the tree.
Step 3: Add oversized ornaments and decorations.
-Use 2-3 oversized items on a 6′ tree and 3-4 items on a 9′ tree.
Step 4: Add picks.
-Stack three picks together for greater impact.
Step 5: Create the tree topper.
-Come down about 1/5th from the top. Add three long, spikey picks around the tree at an upward angle.
Step 6: Add ornaments.
-First, place larger ornaments on the inside of the tree for added dimension.
Step 7: Add flexible glitter tape to really give your tree that “designer touch”.
-Start attaching it near the top, but below the topper. Wind it around the tree similar to how you applied the garland.
Step 8: Tweak, tweak and then tweak some more.
-Step back from your tree and it examine it throughout the process.
Step 9: You’re finished!
Now pat yourself on the back and enjoy the oohs and aahs of your family and friends!
