The Right Start: Picking the Perfect Tree

If you’re buying a real tree, look for one that’s healthy and green with minimal brown needles. Give it a gentle shake – if many needles fall off, it’s not fresh. For artificial trees, consider those with a high tip count for extra fullness.

Fluffing: The Art of Tree Styling

For artificial trees, fluffing is key. Take your time to separate and angle the branches, filling in gaps. This can make a huge difference in transforming your tree from flat to fabulously full.

Strategic Lighting

Lights add depth and warmth to your tree. Weave them in layers from the inside out, making sure to distribute them evenly. This creates a glowing effect that gives the illusion of fullness.

Layering with Garlands and Ribbons

Garlands and ribbons are not just decorations but tools to create fullness. Weave them in and out of the branches, which adds volume and covers any bare spots. Opt for wider ribbons and chunky garlands for a more pronounced effect.

The Magic of Tree Picks and Floral Sprays

Tree picks and floral sprays are your secret weapons. Tuck them into gaps to add texture and volume. They come in various styles – from berries and pinecones to glittery branches – adding an extra dimension to your tree’s look.

Ornament Placement

Place larger ornaments deeper within the branches and smaller ones towards the tips. This not only adds depth but also helps balance the tree’s appearance, making it look fuller and more dynamic.

The Topper Trick

A well-chosen topper can elevate your tree’s look. Ensure it’s proportionate to your tree’s size – too big can make the tree look smaller, while the right size enhances its overall shape and fullness.

Regular Care for Real Trees

For real trees, keeping them hydrated is crucial. A well-watered tree stays fresh and lush longer. Check the water level daily and keep it well supplied to prevent drying and needle drop.

The Bottom Line: Don’t Forget the Skirt

A plush, wide tree skirt not only hides the stand but also adds to the overall fullness at the base of your tree, giving it a grounded and complete look.

Experiment and Have Fun

Finally, don’t be afraid to experiment with different decorations and arrangements. The joy of decorating a Christmas tree is in the creativity and personal touch you bring to it.
