1) Grand Elegant Christmas Tree Idea with Bows

Today we're going to decorate an elegant, glamorous Christmas Tree! So the very first thing we're going to do is make some ribbon bows for the tree - so I have my ribbon right here and I'm just going to fold the ribbon over and make a loop and then crease it at the bottom. Now fold over and make another loop and then I'm just going to keep kind of doing this process until i get a few loops of ribbon - so I think i'm going to do five for this one.

Watch the video below to see the full tutorial.

2) Christmas Tree Decorating for 2021

We're going to start off this whole series with what I consider probably one of the most popular Christmas decorating videos I do every year and that is how to decorate a Christmas tree!

Personally I decorate really, really early for Christmas so I have to use an artificial tree but you know what I've actually gotten to where I prefer an artificial tree because I have a lot more pliability and things I can do with it! The next thing is what kind of greens are you going to use? Well your tree is the thing that helps you decide that if you choose to use a flocked tree like I did this year that already tells you that anything else you do in your house should be in the flocked genre.

3) Watch This BEFORE You Decorate Your Tree

Today we're gonna actually work on decorating a Christmas tree - so basically in this video I wanted to show you guys how I'm decorating my tree this year how, I'm making it feel different every year.

I try to make my Christmas decorations in my tree look and feel different and that can be a challenge when you live in a really small 500 square foot apartment and you've been here for the last three years so I'm getting super creative this time. I'm going to switch around a few things and I can't wait to show you guys also remember most of the things in this video are shoppable.

4) How to Decorate your Christmas Tree Professionally

Using ribbon effectively on a tree can look complicated but I'm going to break it down into two ribbon techniques - cascading ribbon and finishing a ribbon. With these two techniques you can recreate any of these looks at home.

You will need wired ribbon since the wired edges let you twist and sculpt the ribbon to get the exact shapes you want. The trick to creating this look effectively is to tie your ribbon into the tree so that comes in and out. The PVC tips that are already inside the tree are the secret to anchoring ribbon down.

They're already there right there where you need them. Just make sure you use the PVC tip that's the easiest for wiring the ribbon and anchoring it in. Also when you're cascading ribbon you don't need to use just one ribbon.

5) Elf Christmas Candy Tree

Everything in this tree is wired in, it's not going anywhere and I want to share how I did it like how I created the the ladder and where I got everything (Michaels) except for the elves.

I wanted the ladder to be long and narrow because more than a third of it would be into the tree so I painted it all with a holiday red wood paint that I got at Michaels and then this beautiful glitter paint which I'll talk to you about in a second and then I just use teeny tiny little gold nails to get it all in it really wasn't anything crazy this glitter paint ended up being amazing!

6) Candyland Christmas Tree

I'm super excited about this, I am redoing and updating one of the most popular videos that I've ever done which was how to decorate a Candyland Christmas tree!

The decorations that are going to go in the tree this year we had a new tree topper so super excited about that and then I'll usually start with the tree skirt so I flatten it all out a smart person would have installed it over the base before the tree went in but it works the same way so I actually have like this candy cane striped pinwheel type of tree skirt.

7) Christmas tree decorating - best tips and ideas

My biggest time and hand saving tip here is wear gloves and long sleeves fluffing an artificial tree can and will be cruel on your skin and leave little cuts on your hands and arms, so trust me I have learned the hard way and for some reason every year I kind of forget so this is your little reminder from me to you because yes, I do have a few little cuts on my hands because I got excited and started decorating just no gloves!
