Top Tips For Tree Decorating
‘Dec’ the halls – for less
A good fake tree will work year after year But if you do want a real one, it’s worth buying a smaller, better-quality pine that won’t drop all its needles on Christmas Eve.
Build on what you’ve got
Look through decorations you have and work out a theme based on a selection of them. You then only need to buy a few extra bits to create a whole new look.
Look after your decorations
When it’s time to pack everything away for another year, wrap things in their original boxes, coil up fairy lights and store delicate decorations in a hard box so they won’t get crushed. It’ll save the disappointment (and expense) of unwrapping broken bits next year…
Customise plain baubles with acrylic paint, glitter and sequins. The kids will love to get involved. Or make your own decorations: thread wire through popcorn to make a garland, or hang dried slices of orange and cinnamon sticks alongside fairy lights.
