The ritual of decorating the Christmas tree is amusing, nostalgic, and creative, but when you’re critically short on time it’s by no means fun. The good news is you can decorate your evergreen tree in a matter of 15 minutes. Once you set up your Christmas tree, follow these easy steps to get the difficult process of decorating done quickly.
1. Choose the string lights
Since you don’t have time for experimenting with Christmas lights, opt for the standard string lights. They come in a variety of colors and styles, and you probably have some of them. No matter what type of twinkling lights you have, before hanging, check if all the bulbs are working.
2. Hang the lights
Starting at the top, weave the twinkling lights up and under the tree branches. When you’re done, turn them on. This way, you will be sure that you’re ready to hang your Christmas tree ornaments.
3. Hang your tree ornaments
Start with a tree topper, and then scatter and layer your Christmas tree ornaments throughout the tree in the most prominent places. If you have many string lights, don’t hang too much ornaments. The balance is a must.
These steps seem to be obvious, yet we often feel confused and don’t know where to start when we have to get Christmas shopping, cooking and decorating done as fast as possible. Now you know where to start and what to do.
