Follow this video to view suggestions on how you can decorate a Christmas tree. It is best to start placing the lights first. Try to space them evenly and you can secure them in place by means of crafting wire. When you finish with the lights start decorating the Christmas tree with garlands and tinsel. Apart from giving a nice effect they will also serve to hide the wires of the lights. The next step is to start hanging the baubles and trinkets. Instead of including several colors try decorating with just two main colors. Place the baubles evenly from each other and you may also try to group them up. Finally add some more decorations to fill up any gaps. You can use poinsettias and bows.
