You can use one, two or even three colors to add more festive atmosphere. Do not forget to use brighter lights.
The tiny flickering light will make your Christmas tree look more delicate than the larger bulbs. Remember that your light bulb is only for decoration, not too conspicuous. Try to choose bulbs that do not play music or flash, and they should all have the same color theme. If you want to be on the safe side, choose the clear white lights with warm tone.
Hanging a string of light bulbs is the hardest part of decorating Christmas trees. However, if you operate it correctly, the light bulb will bring the most outstanding effect. Follow the following recommendations: Hang the lights from top to bottom and hide the lines behind the branches. Make these light bulbs evenly distributed. If you do not know how to tell if it is even, look back 3 meters. Pay attention to particularly bright or dark areas.
Once the lights has been beautifully decorated, you can start hanging any other decorations and ornaments.

Metal or plastic beaded garlands are easy to decorate as well. As long as you choose a suitable color, a string of gold metal balls or stars will look very effective. Hang them evenly on the tree like light bulbs. Use wire or mesh belt. If you want to hang a ribbon wreath, choose one that can keep its shape unchanged. Choose a ribbon with a medium width, which will look better in the distance, but not too big, so it is not easy to hang it on the tree. According to the length of the ribbons, they are evenly distributed on the trees, so that the visual effect is better.
At the top, you must choose a bright ornament to make the perfect finishing point. Generally, the golden five-pointed star is commonly used. You can also put a delicate Santa doll. If you want to add Christmas lights that will automatically turn on and off, you should also pay attention to whether the power cord is long enough, whether the wires have avoided moving wires, whether each light wire is firmly fixed, and especially whether the voltage is enough.
If it is a large-sized Christmas tree, the branches will generally be bundled first to facilitate handling, and then loosened after being bought. Remember to fully stretching the branches to make them look alive, but don't arrange them too neatly, so as to keep a little natural shape.

The silver/white ribbon on the Christmas tree represents the sanctity of Jesus Christ, and the golden ribbon represents glory.
