These tricks will make decorating your Christmas tree much easier

Nothing gets you in the holiday spirit quite like the perfectly decorated Christmas tree. Of course, if you plan to have your Christmas tree in the center of your home for at least the month of December, you want it to look as good as possible! Here are some tips and tricks to help you spruce up your Christmas tree and have it looking its absolute best.

1. Buy your tree from a nursery 

Extend the holiday spirit way beyond Christmas by buying a live Christmas tree with its roots still in the pot! You can cover the pot with an adorable tree skirt, and once the holidays are over, you can plant your tree and watch it grow!

2. Use green garlands or tinsel to make your tree look fuller

For Christmas trees with sparse branches, use evergreen garlands or shimmering bunches of tinsel to achieve a fuller look. 

3. Decorate your Christmas tree with small and large bulbs

Varying sizes of Christmas tree light bulbs can create a magical look while also adding depth to your Christmas tree. 

4. Hang small mirrors on your Christmas tree

Small mirror ornaments can make a Christmas tree look brighter and more decorated as they reflect twinkling lights and other tree baubles. 

5. Make your own tree topper
For a DIY element on your Christmas tree, make your own showstopping Christmas tree topper using ribbon and pipe cleaners!
