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!
