Before You Hang Your Christmas Ornaments
Decorating a Christmas tree can be a fun activity for the whole family to enjoy together or a project for lovers to do it themselves. Hanging Christmas ornaments on the tree is one of the most enjoyable parts of decorating a tree for most people. Before starting to hang the Christmas ornaments, we recommend hanging the lights and garlands first. Leave the lights on when you start hanging ornaments so you can see how things will look when lit.
How To Hang Ornaments On A Christmas Tree
Your Christmas tree will be beautiful and unique if you follow these simple steps:
First, you need to choose a hanger for your Christmas ornaments. Decide if you’ll be using ornament hooks, ribbons, string, or maybe even florist’s blue wire to hang your ornaments. For most people, decorative hooks are the cheapest and easiest to use. If you have pets or young children, you might consider ribbons or cords to hang your decorations as they can do less harm to them if they come into contact with the hanger.
Ornaments should hang freely, evenly spaced around the Christmas tree to create balance. One thing to consider to get a balanced look is the selection of your Christmas ornaments. If you have a large number of the same exact Christmas ornaments to hang, you should start with those first and make sure they are evenly spaced around the tree before hanging the rest of the ornaments. If all your Christmas ornaments are mostly unique and different from each other, you can start with any ornaments you like.
Your larger and heavier Christmas ornaments should hang a little further inward near the trunk, where the branches are stronger. Moreover, hanging your larger ornaments inside the Christmas tree helps to improve the visual depth of your decorated tree.
You should hang more valuable and highly sentimental Christmas ornaments on a higher and sturdier branch to stay out of the reach of children and pets.
After all your Christmas ornaments are hung, stand back, smile, and enjoy your beautifully decorated Christmas tree for the holiday season with your family and friends.
Note: Stand back and study your tree from various angles (we recommend squinting your eyes) to determine if there are empty areas to fill.
