49 Easy Christmas Tree Decor With Lighting Ideas

Posted on

Once you have your Christmas tree up in your house, it may be all too tempting to rush into putting all the other decorations on the tree before the lights or at least it’s a temptation for overly excited children. The first thing you should always decorate your tree with is lights and that’s after testing that they work and if you have old lights you may want to invest in a more modern set as they’re safer and use less power. But what kind of lights do you buy?

Depends on your Tree’s Decoration Scheme

What lights you have on your tree is dependent on the kind of decorations you’ll be putting on afterwards. If you have children in the house, then it’ll be a nice idea to use lights that are shaped into something Christmassy as it’s likely that the tree will feature a lot of Christmas characters. So for a child friendly tree, you’ll be looking at tree, Father Christmas or reindeer shaped lights.

If your Christmas tree is leaning more on the traditional or vintage side, then you’re going to want to use lights that are elegant rather than overtly fussy. This will pretty much be the exact opposite of a tree that’s being decorated with children in mind. And there’s nothing wrong with this. A tree that’s aiming for more simple decorating style will tend to not be one that emphasises one decoration over the other and instead balances everything out nicely.

No Scheme

Should you not have a decorating scheme, then your tree has the simplest solution of all for you to choose Christmas lights. All you have to do is to choose some lights that you’re happy with and would like to have on your tree. The lights can literally be anything and they don’t have to be conventional either.
