Step 1 Select Ornaments and Lights for Christmas Tree
First of all, you should pick a theme for your tree. Colours, textures and lighting can all match, or you can go with a mix of everything for a colourful look.
You’ll need between 100-300 lights per foot, so if your tree is 6 feet tall, you’ll need between 600-1,800 lights to get good coverage. LED lights are cooler, while incandescent lights give off a warmer glow. You can even use colour-changing lights for fun effects.
You’ll need 20-30 ornaments per foot, so if your Christmas tree is 6 feet tall, you’ll need about 120-180 ornaments. You’ll also need a tree topper, some garland, a tree skirt and a step ladder to stand on while putting all of your lights and decorations up.
