But when it comes to creating a holiday tree that expresses your style, personality, heritage, and surroundings, the options are virtually unlimited. The best Christmas trees are filled with layer upon layer of memories, traditions, and ornaments—both handcrafted and store-bought.

How to Decorate Your Christmas Tree Like a Pro

Getting a dazzling holiday tree doesn't have to be hard work. All it takes is an understanding of how the elements work together and a few easy-to-follow tips from our tree-decorating pros. Remember: It's more important for the family to decorate together than to strive for perfect placement. But these three steps will ensure that your tree is both beloved and beautiful.

Step 1: Hang Your Christmas Tree Lights

The first step in how to decorate a Christmas tree is adding the lights. Tree lights typically come on green or white wire strands, though you can also find black variations now, perfect if you happen to have a black Christmas tree. Choose the strand color that matches your tree so the wire will be hidden. Illuminating your Christmas tree from the inside out will give it the most dynamic look. Start at the base of the trunk and work your way up, wrapping lights around every major branch, moving from the trunk to the tip and back. Fluff the branches as you work your way around the tree.

Here are four popular types of Christmas lights to choose from when decorating your tree.

1
Traditional Incandescent Lights

These Christmas tree lights, which come in a variety of sizes and colors, are the most popular type of tree lights. They warm up the branches of a real tree, which will release the scent of pine into the room.

2
LED Lights

These Christmas tree lights are newer than the traditional incandescent lights and don't produce heat. They're typically more expensive, but they are flameproof, fireproof, and completely safe to decorate a Christmas tree with.

3
Globe Lights

These Christmas tree lights are round and come in many sizes. They look like balls of color on the tree, and while they have a softer glow than mini lights, the light they produce covers a larger area on the tree.

4
Bubble Lights

These retro lights stand straight up on the limbs of your Christmas tree. When the liquid tube on top of the light warms up, bubbles float up and down inside the tube, resembling lava lamps.
Experiment with different lighting schemes until you find one you like; it's OK to mix and match lights. For example, a background of white or clear lights can be highlighted with strands of colored lights that wrap the outer areas of the tree.
See our complete guide to putting lights on your Christmas tree for even more info on how to design your perfect tree lighting scheme.

Step 2: Add Christmas Tree Garland

There are no firm rules for decorating a Christmas tree when it comes to draping garland. To avoid branches bulging between tightly cinched garland strands, start at the top of the tree, and slowly increase the amount of garland between each wave as you work your way down the branches. Plan to use about two strands of garland for every vertical foot of tree.
To avoid a busy look on your tree, decorate your Christmas tree with a variety of garlands from plain to fancy. Thin, beaded garlands look best hung from branch to branch; thicker paper, ribbon, or foil garlands look best wrapped loosely around the entire tree.
If you're still in need of a garland, consider making one this holiday season. If you love a traditional look, make a cranberry garland that blends cranberries with slices of fresh lime, this wrapping paper garland, or this boiled wool felt garland that's a twist on the classic popcorn garland. If contemporary is more your thing, try a wood bead garland, this sophisticated crepe paper garland, or this easy DIY pom-pom garland.
Ribbon is a popular alternative to garland. Loosely wrap wide, patterned ribbon around the entire tree in horizontal bands. To add interest, try making big bows from a similar ribbon and using them to decorate the tree branches. To amp it up, use ribbon vertically on the tree, creating cascading streams of ribbon from the top of your tree to the base, tucking the ends under your tree topper and securing around the trunk at the base.
Editor's Tip: Tuck the ribbon back toward the trunk of your tree to create a billowy look.

Step 3: Hang Christmas Tree Ornaments

The final step in decorating your tree is to hang your Christmas ornaments. Here's what to consider as you're arranging ornaments.
  • To showcase your favorite ornaments, place them in prime positions on the tree first.
  • Next, hang your larger ornaments, spacing them evenly around the tree. Ornament balls in one color but several sizes and textures will create continuity from top to bottom. Hang the larger ones on the bottom, the smaller at the top.
  • Fill in around those ornaments with medium- and small-size ornaments. Be sure to hang some ornaments closer to the trunk to create depth and interest. They reflect the light to make your tree sparkle from the inside. Make the tree yours by adding specialty items, such as handmade ornaments, clip-on ornaments, or icicles.
  • Finish the look with a simple tree topper and a festive tree skirt.
Stand back and study your tree from various angles (we recommend squinting your eyes) to determine if there are empty areas to fill.

We all want to decorate the perfect Christmas tree with baubles, ornaments and lights perfectly co-ordinated in a festive but stylish scheme. In reality, however, it's easier said than done. Decorating a tree is no mean feat, especially for the perfectionists among us, but we've got some styling tips from the team at Balsam Hill – whose artificial Christmas trees have graced the TV sets of The X FactorSunday BrunchThe Ellen DeGeneres Show and This Morning – about how to decorate your tree to make it look like you hired a professional. So, fancy getting that effortless, Insta-worthy look with very little effort? Read on...

1. Invest in a high-quality artificial tree

Christmas trees crafted from premium materials provide sturdy and reliable support for decorations. You'll find that high-quality trees are generally more durable and can stand up to repeated use every year, all whilst maintaining its beautiful look. To prevent wear and tear on your tree, consider models with advanced features that offer easy set up and storage. If you want a real Christmas tree, there are many different types and styles available to buy. See all the tree varieties available, including Nordmann Fir and Norway Spruce, in our real Christmas trees guide.

2. Fluff and shape branches

Fluffing the branches helps make your Christmas tree look fuller and more natural. This can be a time-consuming task, but trust us, the end result is more than worth it. Separate each branch so they fan out to cover as much area as possible. And don't hesitate to bend individual branches to fill in gaps. Keep in mind that a properly shaped tree is an appealing sight however minimal or lavish your embellishments may be.

3. Design around a theme

A professional-looking Christmas tree has a central look that ties all its decorations together. Deciding on a theme before choosing your decorations sets the tone for your materials and gives you a clear idea on how to decorate your tree. Need some inspiration? Why not take a look at John Lewis' Christmas themes for this year, from Garden Retreat to Snowscape, there's a total of seven key looks to help you decorate this festive season.

4. Start with the lights first

While pre-lit Christmas trees are popular and will save you time (and money) with tree lights, if you have a plain tree, always add the light first – it's more difficult to do this after you've added your decorations.
Balsam Hill advise that you start with a string of lights with the plug as the starting point, wrapping it around your Christmas tree’s trunk, working your way up from the centre of the base of your tree. Continue wrapping the lights evenly around the branches nearest to the trunk, and then weave it upwards from the middle of the crown.
'When you reach the crown, weave your way back down, arranging the lights further out on the branches,' say Balsam Hill. 'Keep weaving the lights until you reach the tips of the branches.'
And remember, when weaving, the bulb should be positioned under a branch and the next light over a branch.

5. Choose the right decorations

Choosing accents that fit your theme helps you achieve a cohesive design. Whether it's hanging decorations, ribbons, or floral picks, opt for items that complement the overall appearance of your tree. Many bauble sets include different shapes, sizes, finishes and designs. Combining these with traditional baubles will give you more freedom to play up your theme.

6. Cluster your baubles

Balsam Hill's design consultant, Brad Schmidt, recommends clustering three baubles of different sizes to add flair and visual appeal. You can either put the same pieces together or choose contrasting ones.

7. Layer and style ribbons

Another expert tip is to layer your Christmas tree with decorative ribbons. You may use one type of ribbon or pair ribbons of contrasting textures and different widths to create more impact. Follow these simple techniques for arranging ribbons on your tree.

8. Use tree picks

Tree picks come in many forms, such as decorated branches, twigs, berries, or even pinecones. Use them as subtle accents to complement the entire look of your tree. Make sure to choose picks with bendable stems to make shaping easier.

9. Choose the right tree topper

A topper is a beautiful way to complete the designer look of your Christmas tree. Make sure to choose one that best fits your theme and the proportion of your tree, or you can also opt to make your own topper.
