Step 1: Gather hanging materials Make sure you have enough ornament hooks. If you have pets, use ribbon or string instead. You never know when they're going to get their paws on—or sink their teeth into—an ornament. Tip Hang ornaments with green florist's wire, which blends in better than ornament hooks. Step 2: Hang lights and tinsel first String the lights and tinsel or garland before hanging any ornaments. Step 3: Start with matching sets Start by hanging sets of matching ornaments so you can disperse them evenly. Step 4: Create depth Hang some ornaments close to the tree trunk. They shouldn't all be teetering on the tips of the branches. Step 5: Balance things out Put the heaviest ornaments on the sturdier, inside branches. But don't forget to put some smaller, lighter ones there, too, for balance. Tip If you have an ornament that would benefit from backlighting, dangle it near a tree light. Step 6: Protect your valuables Protect ornaments with sentimental or monetary value by placing them higher up and deeper inside the tree, where they are less likely to get knocked down. Step 7: Place the tree topper After you've hung the last ornament, gently add the tree topper. Step 8: Take a last look Step back a few feet and study the tree from different angles to see that everything looks balanced. Make adjustments if needed. Did You Know?
