Add Some Flair To Your Christmas Tree Decorations

Updated on March 21, 2011

When it comes to Christmas tree decorations, some people are less than enthused. Most of the time it is purely because they are just unsure of what they should put on their trees to make them look good in the least amount of time possible. With everyone busier than ever, it is important to plan Christmas tree decorations that take very little time out of the day. If you want interesting tree decorations that won't take all day, try these easy decorating tips this holiday season.

The best way to add extra flair to your tree is to use ribbon. It is inexpensive and looks lovely on Christmas trees of any style. You can purchase ribbon at your local craft or general merchandise store.

Ribbon with flexible wire sewn into it is the easiest kind to use for this task. You can buy any width, however a medium sized width looks best on a tree. Simply wrap the ribbon around the tree in a spiral motion. Then attach a large bow made from the same ribbon to the top of your tree as your tree topper. This easy task can take an average looking tree and turn it into a gorgeous decoration.

Beaded garland is one of the best holiday accessories that is least used. Many people don't use beading because they think it will be too much trouble, but the truth is that beading is very easy to use on your Christmas tree. You can add sparkle and pizzazz to your Christmas tree decorations with appropriate beading.

Beaded garland can be purchased by the roll or by the yard. You can get it in many different varieties. To choose the correct variety, think about your tree's overall style. If it is Victorian, consider using faux pearl beading. If it is more contemporary, use sparkling clear beads. No matter what you choose, beading will add beauty to your tree this year.

One of the best ways to get your Christmas tree decorations on the tree with the least amount of effort is enlisting other house members to help you out. The more people you have working on the tree, the less amount of time it will take. Just imagine your normal decorating time being cut in half, thirds, or even fourths.

Not only will getting your family to help reduce your stress about decorating, but it will also allow you to get some family time in around the busiest holiday of the year. Although most parents assume only young children are interested in decorating the tree, they might be surprised that their pre-teen would love to help. Just ask!
