How To Professionally Decorate a Christmas Tree - Designer's Step-By-Step Directions - Worthing Court

THE ULTIMATE STEP-BY-STEP GUIDE FOR HOW TO DECORATE YOUR CHRISTMAS TREE LIKE A PROFESSIONAL DESIGNER!

My friends, this is one blog post that you’re going to want to pin to your Christmas Decorating Boards so that you can refer to it year after year.   This is THAT GOOD and there’s a great pinnable image below!

I’ve had the privilege to get special access to several local home decor stores over the last few years, while their stores were closed and their designers reset the entire place for Christmas.  It was a truly magical experience for me and boy did I ever learn a lot!

All of the store designers are amazingly talented and were kind enough to share all of their step-by-step Christmas tree decoration ideas.  I was also told some designer Christmas tree decorating secrets so of course I’m going to share them with you!

You’ll see images from several different Christmas trees, as there were multiple Christmas trees being decorated at the same time.  The important thing to remember is that these steps can be followed no matter what style or color of Christmas decor you want to use on your tree!

 

STEP 1: READY THE TREE & GATHER SUPPLIES
  • Maybe this goes without saying, but fluff all of the branches on the tree and make sure that the tree is standing straight from top to bottom.  I’ve completely decorated a tree more than once, only to realize that the top half of the tree is leaning.
  • Make sure that all of the lights are working.  It’s much easier to fix any problems before the decorations are on the tree.
  • The designers recommend that you have the tree lights on while decorating.
  • Supplies that you’ll likely use while decorating your tree are: ornament hooks, floral wire, pipe cleaners, zip ties (for heavy or bulky items), wire snips and scissors

STEP 2: START AT THE TOP
  • The Christmas tree topper is considered the crowning glory, is usually a bit elaborate and helps to set the look for the entire tree.
  • If you will be adding a star, angel, etc. to your tree, it’s best not to place it right on the tip-top of the tree.  Depending upon what you’re using, it can be very appealing to place it about a hand’s width down from the tip-top.  It can be attached with floral wire or zip ties.  If you attach it slightly down from the top, it should be buried into the branches a little instead of looking like it’s floating on the ends of the branches.

  • Most items, such as a star or angel, look the best (and draw more attention) when they are combined with something else, such as picks and/or ribbon.  And good grief – these days picks are available in all varieties and colors!
  • If you’re using a star, angel, etc. for the top of your tree, start the first layer of topper picks a little below it by adding 3 long spikey picks.
  • If you aren’t using anything else on top of your tree, start the first layer of topper picks slightly down from the top.
  • For the second layer of topper picks, choose 3 – 4 slightly shorter and more full picks.   Place these a few inches closer to the top than the original 3 spikey picks.
  • Add a third layer of picks using shorter and more full picks.
  • Don’t think you have to point them going straight up.  Picks pointing straight up (or at a slight angle) combined with picks pointing downward add a lot of interest.  Depending upon what type of pick you’re using, you may actually want to turn the pick upside down, so that the top of the pick is facing whomever is looking up at the tree topper, especially if your tree is taller than normal head height.

 

 

STEP 3: ADD THE GARLAND

A lush, full garland can make a huge impact on a tree!  These tips are referring to the type of garland that you might also use on a mantel, not the lightweight kind that drapes along the edges of the branches.

  • Start about 1/5th of the way down from the top of the tree.
  • Use floral wire to attach the garland or twist the branches together, if the tree is artificial.
  • Run the garland at around the tree at an angle: 2 – 3 times around a 6′ tree and 3 – 4 times around a 9′ tree.

 

STEP 4: ADD OVERSIZED DECORATIONS
  • To make a real statement and really give your tree a designer look add oversized exaggerated decorations to the tree!  What you add is only limited by your imagination!
  • Add 2 – 3 oversized items to a 6′ tree and 3 – 4 items to a 9′ tree.
  • Be sure to stagger them around the tree and not placed directly above or directly beside one another.
  • Place the largest Christmas decorations toward the bottom of the tree.
  • Mix them up – all of the items don’t need to match.
  • A tip from the professional tree designers is to drill a hole into whatever you’re hanging if you need a spot to run a hanger through.
  • Use cable ties, floral wire or pipe cleaners to attach large items to the tree.  The boot, on the tree, below was purchased at a thrift store with the express purpose of using it on the tree, so it was fine to drill a hole into the backside.   Think outside of the box!

STEP 5: ADD FILLER
  • Add less expensive Christmas ornaments, such as plain round ones, deep inside of the tree.  You’ll only get a glimpse of them, but it they will help to reflect the lights and will make the tree look more full and will fill up any empty spots inside the tree.
  • It’s easier to hang these filler ornaments now as opposed to when the “outside” of the tree is filled with other, larger ornaments.

STEP 6: ADD ORNAMENTS

STEP 7: ADD DIMENSION WITH PICKS
  • Give your Christmas tree more dimension, fill in holes and make the tree appear larger by adding picks throughout the body of it.  The picks should extend beyond the ends of the branches and should be angled in various directions – some downward, some upward and some sideways, if appropriate for the pick.
  • The picks closest to the top of the tree may need to be turned upside down so that you aren’t looking at the underside of it.

  • Stagger various types of picks all over the tree.  Don’t put the same type of picks too close to one another.

  • Multiple picks combined together in a cluster typically look better than just one lonely pick.  Try combining three different types of picks together.  For example – combine something with greenery with something long and stick looking (with or without leaves) and with something full (like a flower).
  • Lay the longest pick on the bottom, the second shortest one on top of that and the shortest pick on top of those two.  Then spend a minute fluffing all of the parts of the picks, twisting and mixing the parts of each pick together.  You’ll get a much more natural and professional look that way.  No flat picks allowed!

  • Poke the pick into the tree and attach it to the branch with a cable tie or with floral wire, if necessary. Fluff the tree branches into and around the pick to help it look like it’s a part of the tree.
  • A long pick makes a great place to hang a special Christmas ornament too.

STEP 8: EMBELLISH THE TREE WITH EXTRAS
  • Add decor embellishments such as ribbon, lightweight garland and glitter tape once all of the picks, ornaments and oversized pieces have been added to the tree
  • To add glitter tape, start attaching it near the top, but below the topper.  Wind it around the tree similar to how you applied the garland in Step 3.
  • Glitter tape has a mind of its own, so allow it to twist and turn as you go.  That’s what makes it look so great!

  • You’ll use less ribbon if you cut short pieces and stuff the ends of them into the tree as opposed to using one long continuous piece of ribbon.  Using this method also makes the ribbon look more natural.
  • Twist a tree branch around the ribbon if it won’t stay in place.
  • When adding ribbon to the tree, start at eye level and work up and out from there.   I can’t tell you why this works better, but it does!
  • Place the ribbon going in different directions so that it doesn’t appear as if it’s just wrapped around the tree.

You’re finished!  Now get ready to enjoy the oohs and aahs of your family and friends and answer all those questions about who you hired to decorate your tree!

How to make a Christmas tree out of cardboard in a spiral

Cut out an even circle out of cardboard. Determine the size of the circle yourself, the height of the tree will depend on this.

We draw a spiral on a circle, try to make the stripes of the spiral have the same width. To do this, use a compass or a rope with a pencil.

Cut the spiral along the line. For strength, you can vertically pass fishing line or threads through the spiral strips.

Attach a loop of strong thread or fishing line to the top of the tree and attach it to the ceiling. The Christmas tree turned out to be light, soaring, it will flow beautifully. It remains only to dress up our beauty.

Christmas tree made from improvised materials

Christmas trees made from pasta, shelves, books, paper, postcards, hangers, push pins and rusty metal funnels! On New Year's Eve, more than ever, you want to show your imagination and create the most original and interesting decorations for your home, class, group, and even yard.

You can see the unusual and fabulous in any objects around us; every thing that is familiar to the eyes easily turns into a New Year's composition, if you put a little effort into it. And, of course, the easiest way to create the main symbol of the New Year is the Christmas tree.

Christmas tree made from improvised materials

For example, a creative DIY Christmas tree can be made from ... an ordinary wall shelf with photographs and souvenirs: we simply hang several garlands of flags diagonally, which can be colored or white, matching or contrasting with the shelf; on each garland you can make an inscription with a wish for a happy New Year or Christmas.

Christmas tree from shelves and photo frames

No less original DIY Christmas tree can easily be made from stacked books: having formed a beautiful (and most importantly stable) pyramid out of them, decorate it with a New Year's garland. A Christmas tree for real book lovers is ready! If you pick up green-bound books, you can stack them in a pyramid open, cover up. A garland or even beads is also suitable for decoration. A star attached to the top will give an even greater resemblance to a real book tree.

A very beautiful, meaningful Christmas tree will be made from postcards and drawings that were given to all family members throughout the year. To do this, we simply mount them on the wall in the form of a pyramid. This Christmas tree will help you remember all the pleasant moments that filled the outgoing year. You can print the most spectacular of the pictures accumulated over the year and form a Christmas tree out of them - this will be a good gift for the whole family.

Christmas tree from postcards

Another spectacular and unusual Christmas tree with your own hands can be made from a large sheet of very thick paper. To do this, we draw a circle on it, inside which a solid, continuous, spiral line runs from the edge to the center. Cutting the circle along this line, we get a large paper spiral, which must be hung by the inner tip from the ceiling or chandelier. To make the spiral look like a Christmas tree, we decorate it with various decorative elements: balls, stars, snowflakes, on thin threads or “rain” ribbons, attaching them to paper curls.

For lovers of non-standard solutions in high-tech style, a Christmas tree assembled from one-color metal or plastic clothes hangers is suitable. We fix them to each other with satin ribbons, on which we hang Christmas balls or other Christmas decorations.

If there is a small child in the house, you can draw a Christmas tree on a large sheet of paper with green finger paints, putting handprints on the canvas. From above we draw a large golden star, from below the trunk - the masterpiece is ready!

Also, to decorate the room, you can lay out the silhouette of a Christmas tree directly on the wall. To do this, we use beads, an electric garland and various New Year's decorations - both factory-made and home-made. Such a Christmas tree will fill the wall space well and create a cozy atmosphere in the room.

Christmas trees made from:

push pins can be used for table decor (transparent pins look especially impressive). To make such a Christmas tree, we put a foam cone on a glass and chip it with buttons from all sides. You can use a cone made of very thick paper, the main thing is that the buttons are firmly held in it.

Herringbone of buttons

colored sea salt: roll up a sheet of thick paper into a cone and coat it with glue, which we sprinkle thickly with coarse sea salt. When the salt hardens, it can be colored a little.

pasta. To create such a Christmas tree, you will also need a foam or sponge cone, which we pre-paint with green paint. We also color the macaroni green. Then, making small cuts in the cone, we insert pasta into it (large “feathers” are well suited for such crafts).

Each of these Christmas trees can be decorated with bright decorative elements and even a small electric garland.
