Stringing lights around your Christmas tree is no mean feat (especially if they need to be untied), but Kirstie Allsopp has revealed a game-changing tip for hanging them like a pro.

Make sure the tree lights are turned on when you hang them so you know where to put them, says Kirstie Country Living from her home in London. “I always spiral them from the top. Do not forget it make sure your tree is far enough away from the wall that you can walk around the whole thing. Start at the top, then spiral the lights down, placing them as far in as you can.”

Once you’ve hung your lights, it’s time for decorations. We all have our favorite baubles and ornaments, but have you ever considered repurposing your old tinsel (or these plastic-free alternatives) to fluff up the branches? Remember to only use what you have and avoid buying anything new.

Kirstie tells us: “Take your glitter and follow the same line of lights, making sure you hide the lights with glitter. The power of the lights is magnified by the glitter. You don’t need to see the glitter – bury it deep into your tree. Use it to dent the wood and give it more reflective power. I bury my glitter inside the wood so it gives volume and light.”

Decorating the Christmas tree is one of the joys of the holiday season, and many households are doing it earlier than ever. Before you start hanging baubles, Kirstie reminds us to think about tree placement so it doesn’t look empty.
