The garland decoration for Christmas tree is the thing that you wrap around the Christmas tree in order to accentuate the outer edges of the tree. Garlands come in a variety of forms. Whether you use long strands of tinsel, ornamental rope or ribbon – it all amounts to the same thing. Try and space the garland decoration for Christmas tree so that is uniform as it twists around the tree. If the garland becomes lopsided as it winds around the tree it will look fairly shabby. You need not only wrap the garland around the tree, there are other methods you can use to make a garland an effective Christmas tree decoration. Consider cutting the garland into multiple strips then starting at the top of the tree, lay the garland down the side of the tree instead of winding it around the tree. You can then attach bows and ribbons to the garland in order to further decorate it.
If you are a little short on money or just want to be frugal, consider purchasing some strips of festive material and making your own garland. Many manufacturers charge a great deal for what is essentially a thin strip of cloth with a hem on either edge. You can do this yourself relatively easy if you have a specific theme in mind. Try and stick to the primary Christmas colours such as white, red and green. If you feel particularly adventurous and your decor compliments it – experiment with other colours. Try and use warm, celebratory colours. If the pattern is too noisy it probably is a good idea to reconsider the garland. There are exceptions to this however, tinsel is normally quite a noisy decoration and it still works well.
Try and match the garland with your Christmas tree lights as well. You might also consider using a flame retardant material in order to make your garland. If there is an electrical accident and sparks threaten to burn the tree then you will want to ensure that the garland does not enable the fire to spread any further. Garlands are a beautiful addition to any tree; however they are not really an essential part of the Christmas tree decorating process. If you can afford a garland or have the means to add that little extra to your tree, then by all means, purchase a garland to help accentuate your other decorations. You really are only limited by your imagination.
