A quick and easy way to be able to decorate the Christmas tree fuss-free


  • Bauballs/Decorations
  • String/Ribbon
  • Scissors


  1. Cut your string as long as you please - I use about 1.5 meters to 2 meters.
  2. Take a decoration and tie it on one end of the string, about 20cm from the end.
  3. Take a 2nd decoration and leave about a 10-20cm gap from the first decoration and tied on the next decoration. Continue this until you fill up the whole string. Keep going with as many strings of decorations as needed.
    (with mine, I went by colours with bauballs)
  4. Now, just twirl it around the tree as you would with tinsel =)

    Easy to make, easy to use and put on the tree, and easy to take off the tree and store until next Christmas =)


I was thinking this year on how to decorate the tree to make it look nice, not all ratty like it usually does when I decorate lol. So here is what I came up with, and honestly it was much easy to do to receive a nicer Christmas tree. Next year I will be using more decorations. Looks really effective.

  • What a great idea. Thanks for sharing :)


  • I love the idea of those pop up Xmas trees too


  • Oh yes, I need this. It’s always a struggle to get the baubles well balanced and looking good. Easy way to ensure this


  • Great idea! Thank you so much for sharing this. It’s great.


  • Does it get tangled like the Christmas lights though? really hate that!


  • Hmmmm, I think I prefer the individual baubles. I get frustrated hanging the lengths of tinsel, I’m picturing extra frustration with a string of balls


  • Yes this is something I need to do next Christmas

    • To stop the kids from fighting over who’s put the most decorations on the tree


  • Very clever tree decorating idea – we have a mixed and eclectic collection of baubles.


  • Your tree look’s amazing,thank’s so much!


  • such a good idea. my dog likes to play with the baubles :l


  • Was wondering how I’d keep my three year old and her dog from pulling off the decorations and this could be the solution!


  • i have these colours except silver but it does look good.


  • Brilliant idea. Thanks for sharing!


  • It looks great! Thanks so very much for sharing!


  • WOwwww that is well decorated.
