This is my favourite time of year to decorate my home! Scroll through to see some of my Christmas decor tips.
The many layers of Christmas tree decor begins with a foundation of tree and lights.
Do the squint test to determine even distribution of lights. If you stand back and look at your tree through squinted eyes, you will detect the dark areas needing more lights.
Next, add your layers of flocked garland and extra twinkle with lighted garlands, for dimension and pop.
Add your ornaments, starting with smaller scale at the top, working to larger ones as you work down to the base. Don’t forget to reach into the bows of the tree adding ornaments close to the trunk for visual depth.
I like to position my ornaments in parallel formation between the rows of garlands, giving a candy cane stripe pattern to the tree.
Finish off with the perfect tree skirt and just add presents!
I like to distribute my decor throughout the house and I try to add greenery wherever I can.
I like to start with a faux garland and add real greenery for great dimension and scent.
I used sprigs of pine, cedar, and seeded eucalyptus.
As with my interior decor, I like to start with a faux base and add real greenery to my outdoor pieces.
In my wreath I've used sprigs of pine, cedar, and seeded eucalyptus, and added some twinkle lights, a handful of ornaments and a few pine cones.
Again, I've used sprigs of pine, cedar, and seeded eucalyptus. I've also added birch branches and oversized pine cones.
