How to Decorate Your Christmas Tree: Part 1 (Getting started, choosing a theme, adding lights and floral accents.)
All right! So once you have your lights, flowers, floral picks and bows up it's time to hide bare spots with your largest ornaments.
There will always be bare spots on a tree: Either because that's the way the branches are, or because there aren't enough lights in an area and it causes a kind of black hole. I like to cover these spots up with gigantic ball ornaments first. I have 9 or 10 of these really big ones, and I tie them on with ribbon. (Ribbon that I saved from gifts, by the way! Totally free to me. And pretty, too!)
However, you don't want your tree to look like you have everything perfectly set. It does need to look random, even while not having two identical ornaments next to each other. Just eyeball it and you'll do fine.
I'm sorry this post seems a little short...Photoshop sort of quit working on me and I don't have a ton of time tonight anyway. But I wanted to post because I'm notorious for starting something like this and not finishing, so this is my feeble attempt at keeping the ball rolling. Look for the next post tomorrow!
Happy Monday! (And even happier tree decorating!)
