Rod Works is making everyone’s visions come to life with their tips on decorating your Christmas tree. These tips are not only easy, but they will make your tree the one to beat. It’ll be sure to stand out.
Tip 1: Use Picks: Picks bring so much character to those everyday boring branches, picks alone can set the tone for your tree. What’s better than a pick? Several picks. Layering them on top of each other gives you even more incredible fluff.
Tip 2: Ribbon and/or garland: You will need a lot of this. You don’t have to tie fancy bows, you can simply gather 3 or 4 folds, twist with wire, stick it in the tree and then drape its tails throughout the tree. You can also layer ribbon on ribbon for more color and texture options. Plus, layering a non-wired ribbon on a wired ribbon gives you better control.
Tip 3: Ornament Balls: Put ornament balls in groupings of 2 and 3 instead of hanging them individually (I do 3 small and medium balls and 2 for large ones). Grouping them together makes more of a statement and is more aesthetically pleasing to the eye. Whether they are big or small you’ll actually notice them more in these groupings. You can use all the same color in each group or mix several colors in a group. Try it both ways to see which way you like better. It’s fun to attach ribbon to these ornament groupings and let those tails trail through the tree.
