The first step in how to decorate a Christmas tree is adding the lights. If you have a white tree, you can find black variations of the tree lights, which are perfect. Once you’ve decided on the decorations you want to use, it’s time to attach them to the tree and hang them up.
This is especially important for garlanded trees, as they can be difficult to remove once they’ve been hung. It’s also a good idea to make sure that you have plenty of space between your Christmas decorations and the ground, so that they don’t interfere with your neighbors’ view of the holiday season. Don’t use too many decorations at once.

How do you put ornaments on an evenly tree?
Work from top to bottom when decorating your tree and try to distribute the ornaments evenly, but not symmetrically. To give the tree depth, place some ornaments a few inches back into the branches. Depending on the theme and style you are going for, what kind of topper you choose is up to you.
For example, if you want a tree that looks like a Christmas tree, you might want to go with a white or white and blue or a red or red and white ornament. If you’re looking for something a little more festive, try a green or green and yellow ornament, or even a pink or pink and purple or purple and green.
You can also choose to decorate your trees in a variety of colors, such as red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, pink, white, and black.
Do you put ribbon on the tree before or after the ornaments?
Add ribbon before ornaments Begin your tree decorating by adding lights and then the ribbon. Ornaments should never stop going on last. If you attempt to add ribbon after hanging ornaments, you run the risk of breaking ornaments as you style your tree. Pick up your scissors and start cutting. Cut your ribbon to the length you want your ornament to be.
For example, if you’re going to hang a tree with a 10-foot diameter, cut it to a length of 10 feet. You can also use a ruler to make sure you cut the right length. Once you have your length cut, use the scissors to cut off the excess ribbon, leaving you with an ornament that is about the same length as the tree you are hanging it from.
