There are a few different methods for fluffing a Christmas tree. Whether it’s an artificial tree or real one, the process of fluffing it depends on its structure. Some trees have a single stem, while others may have multiple stems that can vary in shape. Here are some tips:
Filling empty spots on a christmas tree
If you have a bare spot on your Christmas tree, you can easily fill it with a variety of ornaments. You can place classic baubles or more decorative pieces, such as chocolates or angels. But if your tree is facing a gap or wall, you can use the same approach as with a real tree, but add a more natural look. Ornaments can be placed deep inside the tree to fill bare spaces, as well as reflected lights.
Before buying a tree, you should determine which decorations you’ll be using on it. If you’re planning to hang garland or garlands on it, choose one with separate branches. Otherwise, it might look awkward and will cause bald spots. But that’s a normal part of decorating a tree. Using artificial flowers or garlands can fill in those empty spaces. This is especially helpful when the tree’s branches are too far apart.
Positioning lights to give the impression of depth
When decorating a Christmas tree, positioning lights to create depth is essential. Place larger ornaments on the sides of the tree, a few inches apart from each other. For a cohesive look, place medium and small ornaments in the center and place the smaller ones near the bottom. Position the ornaments evenly, allowing them to reflect light from all directions. Place shatterproof ornaments near the bottom of the tree or in areas that see high traffic.
Place light strands around the outer branches of thicker trees, with smaller ones at the base of thinner branches. This creates an illusion of depth because the light strands do not stand out from the ornaments. If you have a huge ornament collection, you will need a different approach to lighting. Use white lights in full trees to avoid looking cluttered. It is a good idea to avoid using large, unattractive lights, which can draw attention to the tree’s lower branches.
Adding artificial snow sprays
You can make your tree look beautiful by adding artificial snow sprays. You can add these sprays to individual branches, or cover the entire tree with a large drop cloth. Depending on the type of spray, the “snow” may last anywhere from a few days to a few weeks. Once you have sprayed on the spray, you will need to sift the snow to get a fluffy look.
If you do not have a real tree, you can still add flocking to it using spray-on flocking. You can also use canned “snow spray” – it works like a spray paint. Spray the branches one at a time until they are covered, and then repeat until the entire tree is sprayed. Adding flocking to a tree is a great way to add a touch of fantasy to your holiday decorations.
Putting lights on an artificial christmas tree
Putting lights on an artificial Christmas tree is a relatively easy process. You can start at the top and wrap the lights around branches. If you are using wire strands, you can hot glue them to the ends of the strands. Make sure to place the strands of lights in a sideways “S” pattern so that the branches are parallel to each other. This way, the lights will be evenly spaced on the tree.
There is no rule for how many lights to use on an artificial Christmas tree, but a general rule of thumb is 100 mini lights per foot. However, this number can vary depending on your preference and the style of your artificial Christmas tree. Always have an extra strand on hand. In case some lights malfunction, you can buy additional ones. You can also experiment with different color strands to find the perfect combination of light colors.
