Perhaps this is the first year you’ve chosen an artificial Christmas tree. But whether you’ve chosen this route in an effort to trim your decorating budget or you simply believe an artificial tree works as well for them as a freshly cut tree, you may find that artificial trees have come a long way and look very realistic. However, you may rationally know that your tree looks fine and full, but you still feel like it may need extra attention and adornment to get it just right.Finding the Right Artificial Tree is One Way to Get the Full Christmas Tree Look You Want
Start your search early for the new addition to your permanent Christmas decoration collection. When you get a head start, you may find an artificial Christmas tree sale with a large variety of full and realistic-looking artificial trees. It will be worth the effort to seek out a Christmas tree clearance sale to make room for other stock for different seasons.
Even if you don’t happen upon a massive Christmas tree sale, you should be able to find something within your price range that you can work with. Consider a selection of white Christmas trees if you want a snow-covered Christmas tree that you can adorn with brightly colored ornaments, giving your family room a brighter appearance for the holiday season.
Once you find and purchase the right Christmas tree, you want to store it safely until it’s showtime. Search for a Christmas tree storage bag so that your new tree won’t accumulate dust in the off-season while in storage.
Don’t Forget the Trimmings
Whether you plan to adorn your tree in tinsel, strings of popcorn, a variety of lights or if you plan to search for a pre-lit Christmas tree, make sure you’re well-equipped with ornaments and other accessories to make the most of your family room’s seasonal centerpiece. To help boost your tree’s full appearance, concentrate on more than just the tree. Consider how you will tie the whole room together so that, while your tree is front and center, it has plenty of backing support like stockings hung from the fireplace, holly and lights adorning the ceiling, Christmas-themed blankets and rugs, scented and decorative holiday candles.
The Way to Assemble and Trim For a Full Christmas Tree
Once you choose your tree’s theme, then you can fill out your tree, from bottom to top.
- Start from the bottom. Creating a full-looking Christmas tree means starting at the foundation. Make sure the branches are evenly spaced as you work from the bottom, moving up to the very peak of the tree.
- Add all of the branches and twigs. As you insert each branch into its respective bracket at each level, also fill in the corresponding twigs at a 45 degree angle from the branches to give a fuller appearance.
- Manipulate the branches and twigs as needed. Once you have inserted all of the branches and twigs, take an overall glance at your tree and see if it needs any extra adjustments. If so, manipulate the branches and twigs until you are satisfied.
- The decorations will do the rest. Adorn your tree with strands of garland, twinkling lights and your favorite ornaments. Make sure to place some gifts under the tree until you are pleased with the results.
