Topiary Trees For Christmas

History of the Christmas Tree

Tips For Decorating an Artificial Christmas Tree

A beautifully decorated artificial tree usually follows a particular

color scheme and theme. All of your trim or Christmas tree decorations

should coordinate with each other such as Christmas tree lights, top,

Christmas tree ornaments, trim and tree skirt.

Artificial Christmas Tree Assembly

The first step would be to assemble your artificial Christmas tree.

Follow the manufacturer instructions that are included inside the box.

After the tree is assembled you will need to shape the branches or limbs.

The rows should be even and spaces between each row of branches

should be kept to a minimum. The branch tips should be curved

according to the instructions of the tree so that the tree looks as natural

as possible. The needles of the tree become crushed due to packing and

shipping to fluff the needles so that they look lively and lush clasp

each branch in your hand and run your hand against the grain and

this will fluff up your branches. Over years of storage and use the

braches will appear more crushed. To remedy this use the same method

as above only holding a hot cloth in your hand as you run your hand over

the branch. We offer thousand’s of artificial Christmas trees please visit us at

to view our complete line of artificial Christmas trees.

Christmas Tree Lights

The tree is assembled and your next step would be to add the lights.

Many of the artificial Christmas trees on our site come prelit which

means that the lights are already on the tree for you and all you need

to do is assemble the tree and plug the lights in. If you purchase an

unlit Christmas tree you will need to add the lights yourself. A good

rule to thumb for the amount of lights needed based on the size of the

tree is as follows: 4 to 5 feet add 200 to 500 miniature lights, 6 to 6.5 feet

add 500 to 700 miniature lights, 7 to 7.5 feet 600 – 800 miniature lights,

8 feet to 9 feet 800 – 1200 miniature lights.

To install lights on the tree first step is to test each strand by plugging

them into an outlet to assure they work. If the do not then you will need

make sure each bulb is securely inserted into the light socket as the light

strand will not work if even one bulb is not secure in it’s place.

To put the Christmas lights in place on your tree, run an extension cord

from an electrical outlet to the center or the tree or trunk of the tree. Plug

the first set of Christmas lights into the extension cord and run the lights

to the top of the tree. Twist every other light around tip of a branch working

from left to right on the branches, wrapping lights in a clockwise manner.

Wrap the cord around each branch, placing lights as you work around and

downward.

Repeat with remaining light sets, always working them upward to the point

where the last light set stopped, before wrapping. Continue from the inside

of the tree branch to the outside and then back in again. Hide the light cords

by winding them around the branches and nestling them in the needles.

Do not hang light bulbs in mid-air between branches.

Place lights near the ends of the branches, so that the lights outline the shape

of the tree. If lights with reflectors are used, you can reduce the number of

lights on a tree as reflector lights generally are both brighter and more

decorative. For the greatest impact, always use the same style light set

to cover the whole tree in the basic lighting. Decorative light sets or

theme light sets should be added after the basic lights have been

installed and should be evenly space around the tree or grouped in

sets for focal points on the tree.

It is important to always follow the instructions printed on the box of

Christmas lights. We offer 100s of styles and colors or Christmas

lights please visit us at

Installation of Christmas Garland to an Artificial Christmas Tree

The amount of garland needed based on tree size is as follows:

4 to 5 feet add 40 – 55 feet, 6 to 6.5 feet add 70 – 75 feet of

Christmas garland, 7 to 7.5 feet 84 – 98 feet of Christmas

garland, 8 feet to 9 feet 120 – 150 feet Christmas garland.

Swagging Christmas Garland: Start in the back of the tree

with the bottom row of branches. Twist one piece of garland

around a branch tip to secure it. Swag garland to center tip

of next branch and continue around the tree. Use 12&quote; to 20&quote;

swags, depending on the width of the tree. Let swag fall freely

and naturally.

Cut or break garland when you have reached your starting point,

or swag up to the next layer on the back side of the tree. When

using bead garland you may not be able to cut this at the starting

point, as some garlands may come apart. You can either tuck the

balance into the tree or go up to the next starting point for the next swag

Start second row in same manner as first, making sure the peaks of the

new row are centered over the valleys of the previous row. Swags

should not touch the row below. Continue draping in same manner

to top of tree, with smaller swags as you go up. The more uniform the

swag, the more formal the look. To create double swags begin with two

stands.

Spiraling Ribbon for Garland: Anchor 4-6 strands of ribbon to top of

tree. Separate the strands and spiral down around the tree, spacing

evenly as you go down. Bottoms can be anchored or left spiraling

to the floor

Adding Christmas Tree Ornaments

Attach Christmas tree ornament hooks to each ornament. Hang larger

or more dominant ornaments on the lower part of the tree for balance.

Shiny finishes should be hung on the tree before matte or soft finishes,

bright colors before muted colors and larger sizes before smaller sizes.

Ornaments look better if they hang suspended rather than touching

branches.

Distribute ornaments in an overall pattern. This can be evenly spaced

on branch tips as focal points, evenly spaced in the tree to add

dimension, irregularly spaced cluster and groups as focal points.

We have an assortment of beautiful glass and resin or plastic

Christmas tree ornaments in a variety of colors and finishes please

that is perfect for your home or commercial business.
