Secrets & Tips for a Happier Family

Since the dawn of time, evergreens have been used in order to celebrate winter festivals. In medieval times, trees that have leaves throughout the year were used to depict biblical themes. Why does this custom still last? Probably because the evergreen makes them think happy thoughts. The question now is if you should be putting out a Christmas tree this year. The answer is “Yes”.  It doesn’t matter if you have a real tree or a faux one. It’s the holiday season and it can’t be missing from your home. In this article, we’ll tell you how you can transform the tree into a masterpiece with the help of ribbon.

Choose your style and pattern

The thing is that you don’t need special ribbon when it comes to decorating the Christmas tree. You can use everyday ribbons. Chances are that you have some decorative material lying around the home, so make sure to use it. If you don’t have any ribbons left, then you should better go shopping. When in the market for decorative material, choose the same style and pattern. Why is this important? Because if you use different styles and patterns, you’ll create a real chaos. You can choose whatever you want, whether it’s burlap or grosgrain ribbon. Just make sure you stick to it.

 

Don’t start with the lights and ornaments

When decorating their Christmas tree most people make a huge mistake. More precisely, they usually start with putting the bows. The secret is too place the bows only after you have placed the Christmas lights and the other ornaments. This way the sash will not tangle.

Buy a bunch of bows

Christmas wouldn’t be the same without bows, would it? If you want your evergreen to look amazing, buy a bunch of bows. If you can’t find any, then you’ll have to make your own bows. It’s not that hard, especially if you have ribbon. Cut a piece of material, make 2 loops and create a knot. In order to have the most beautiful tree on the block, use different colours. Yes, you can use various colours, as long as they are complimentary. To be on the safe side, use maximum 3 or 4 colours. You don’t want to overdo it.

Place the ribbon on top

There’s no reason to be frustrated that you can’t create a Christmas topper. You can always learn how to. For the top of the evergreen, you’ll need a very good ribbon. Use wired ribbon and create a magnificent bow. While some people prefer to decorate the top of the tree and let the streamers of garland flow vertically, you can place the ribbon around the tree. Just remember to not fall to the temptation of winding it tightly around the tree.
