Tips to Make Decorating the Tree Less Stressful

Buda Family Decorating Their Christmas TreeNothing is more traditional than a Christmas tree. Yet, decorating the tree can often feel like an unwanted chore. The good news is that it doesn’t have to be that way. As a matter of fact, you can do more to make this year’s decorating become a holiday moment you look forward to each year. By implementing these few techniques, you can make decorating your Christmas tree easier and much less stressful this year.

Choose a Smaller Tree

If you’re buying a fresh-cut tree year after year – or even if you are looking for an artificial tree for your Buda rental house – make things easier on yourself by choosing a smaller tree. Even though you have room in your house for a tree that will impress from sheer size, it’s necessary to remember that the bigger the tree is, the longer it will take to decorate. If you don’t want to go too small, try choosing a thinner tree that will fit neatly into a corner or in front of a window.

Choose a Theme

One more strategy to simplify your Christmas tree decorating is by choosing a theme for your tree. For instance, for a breathtaking tree that is easy to make, choose a white tree, and decorate it with red cardinals for a simple but stunning display. Or, for an added personal touch, use photographs and twine to create ornaments out of your greatest memories. Even though you have a wide range collection of ornaments, you don’t need to use all of them every year.

Decorate in Stages

Trying to buy a tree, set it up, get the lights on it, and then add ornaments is a long process. Instead of punishing yourself trying to do it all in one day, consider breaking up the decorating process across different days. This is especially helpful if you use a fresh-cut tree since the branches will need time to relax after placing the tree in a stand. By giving yourself plenty of time, you can make sure that you have the energy to make decorating your tree a pleasant event.

Use Good Quality Decorations

While it may be tempting to buy the cheapest strings of lights and ornaments you can find, doing so may not be a smart option. Picking the right quality string lights, ornaments, and other décor is crucial for making your experience decorating your tree as stress-free as possible. Good quality light strings are less likely to break, tangle, or burn out instantly. And good quality ornaments will always last through years of holidays. Make things easier for you by using quality decorations for your Christmas tree.

Enlist Help

Decorating a Christmas tree can be much less stressful with a few extra helping hands. If applicable, try to persuade others to help you set up and decorate your tree. Not only can the entire progress go quicker, but your Christmas tree helpers may also inspire you to try decorating in a new or different way.

Use Fewer Ornaments

Make a statement with your Christmas tree this year by going big – where your ornaments are concerned, that is. Using a few but large ornaments, bows, garlands, and other items, you can produce an impressive statement tree more quickly and easily than ever before. Just guarantee that you have the items you want to use on hand, and place them on the branches with hooks or floral wire.

Label and Organize

In the end, one of the best suggestions to make decorating your Christmas tree less stressful is to start when you put your decorations away. As you box up your ornaments, light strings, and other décor items, label each box accurately with the contents. Use store-bought string light bobbins or even just a piece of thick cardboard to store lights neatly and prevent tangles. Keep your spare bulbs, ornament hooks, and extension cords in the same boxes with your tree décor for quick and easy access. By taking the time to label and organize your decorations, you can decorate your tree even faster the next year.
