With all the hustle and bustle of holiday shopping, it’s easy to let your home – especially your Christmas tree decorating – fall by the wayside. Of course, we all want a glorious looking conversation piece to marvel at throughout the festive season, but time constraints can make that next to impossible.

After choosing a tree from our collection of Christmas trees online and getting it delivered to your home, it’s time to put the finishing touches. We know you’re busy, so we’re going to share here 5 Christmas tree decorating ideas that won’t take too much of your time.

1. Adorn with Oversized Ornaments

When you’re pressed for time and you need to complete your tree decoration fast, there’s no better way to do it than to use oversized glitter balls and burlap ribbons draped from top to bottom. It’s best to put the Christmas balls in prime positions first to make it easy for you to incorporate the ribbon, then finally add smaller ornaments or garlands.

2. Go All White

If you bought our white Douglas Fir artificial tree, complement it with tinsel, baubles and decorations in white and silver. An all-white theme allows you to put just a few key pieces and opt out of fully decorating your tree. From our selection of Christmas lights for sale, go for the white coloured sets as well. Remember that for every vertical foot, you should have 100 lights for fresh trees, and 50 lights for artificial ones.

3. Use Crystal

Looking for that dramatic, eye-catching flair? Easily glam up your tree with ornaments that reflect light. Think of glass icicles, tinsel with lights, and metallic balls and ribbon garlands. When it comes to these classic ornaments, the more the merrier! So, have as much as you like and let your tree shimmer with them.

4. Decorate with Snowflakes and Stars

Who says it’s impossible to feel the cold during an Australian Christmas? By adorning your tree with more frosty snowflakes than the usual, you can set the mood for winter holidays, even with the sun shining bright outside. For a more attractive décor, spray your snowflakes and stars with silver glitter and let them dry before hanging them.

5. Cover with Lights

If you can’t wow them, outshine them! And there’s no better way to do that than with a fibre optic Christmas tree. You can choose to add your own decorations or simply go with our pre-decorated package. Adding more lights to this already brightly-lit tree will make it even more attractive.

There’s no right or wrong way to decorate your Christmas tree, whether you chose an artificial tree or opted for a fresh one. Be inspired with our ideas above or simply come up with your own!
