I love decorating the tree, its something that I love doing and something that makes me get all Christmassy and excited. We normally put our Christmas tree up quite late even through I'm begging for it to go up since the 1st December. So I thought I would show you how I do my tree and you guys can compare it against how you do yours.
Step 1: Putting the tree in its stand and waiting for the branches to go back to their original position. You can either wait for it to happen naturally which can take up to a day or two, or you can speed it along by gently pushing the branches down.
Step 2: The lights! This for me is the most time consuming part of the whole process because even through last year, we painstakingly wrapped the lights as eat as possible when we went to get them out this year they were just one massive tangle of wires and bulbs that took hours to untangle. On our tree we put colored lights and white lights on the tree. Apart from I accidentally put the small colored lights on the tree instead of on the window so you cant really see them (oops).
Step 3 : The Decorations. my favorite part of this. I love all the ones that go one my tree, we don't really have a color scheme as all the decorations are either homemade or ones that me or anyone in my family have found and just thought really cute. I always spend ages sorting out the decorations and where i want them to go so the tree looks just right.
I hope everyone has a lovely Christmas!
