With these easy steps you can make your Christmas Tree look spectacular!!

The biggest tip to decorating a tree is to take your time!!

Follow these steps and you can't go wrong!

  1. Open up
  • Take the tree out of the box. Secure the stand. Assemble the tree from the bottom upwards.
  • Open up the branches. Take the branch and open each branchlet in a different direction. There may not be two branches stuck together. Work your way from the bottom upwards.

Tip 1: Use a rotating tree stand from Santa’s Warehouse to WOW every one and get a 360® view at your tree.

Tip 2: Take your time!! This step is the most important step of all even if it takes hours; make the tree look perfect even without decorations!!

Here are more specific instructions of how to assemble the trees.

Unhinged Trees

 Hinged trees

Shaping all the branches

  1. Lights
  • Start with your lights. Make sure the lights are working before you put them up.
  • Start from the tip of your tree (end with your plug at the bottom).
  • Go around and around the tree with the lights. Make sure the lights are evenly spread. Don't push the lights too far into the tree. Make sure each light is visible and not behind a branch.
  • Now start to hide ALL the wires with the branches. Fold the branches over the wires, but make sure it is not in front of the lights.

Tip: As you go along putting up the lights, stand back and look if the lights are evenly spread out.

  1. Décor
  • When you start with your decorations, start with the biggest decorations first then go smaller decorations and baubles to fill the spaces.
  • If you have ribbon or tinsel, they are first to go onto the tree.
  • After the ribbons you start with your poinsettias and bigger décor items. When you put them in, stand back and see if they fill the perfect space. If not take the time to make it right.
  • Use the smaller décor to fill the spaces in between.
  • After each decoration is put on the tree, stand back and make sure it is on the perfect spot
  • All the decorations must be evenly spread.

Tip: Make sure there are no open gaps that all the décor are evenly spread out.

  1. Tree topper
  • Put your tree topper on the tip of the tree, use a couple of branches to keep it steady.

Tip: If the tree topper is too heavy, fasten a dowel stick to the base of the tree topper and then fasten it to the tree with cable ties.

Ever wondered about the history behind all your favourite Christmas figures?

Well look no further for answers!!

Santa Clause

The legend of Santa Clause derived from a Monk named St. Nicholas.

He was admired for his kindness and helping the poor and sick people.

The word Santa Clause derived from his Dutch name Sinter Klaas.

 

Nutcracker

In German traditions nutcrackers are a symbol of good luck.

It is believed that they protect and guard your home.

Folk tale recounts that a puppet-maker won a nut cracking challenge by creating a doll with a mouth for a lever to crack the nuts.

Decorative nutcrackers became popular in the USA after the Second World War, following the first US production of The Nutcracker ballet in 1940 and the exposure of US soldiers to the dolls during the war.

Christmas Trees

The evergreen tree was traditionally used in Europe as symbol of life in the midst of winter and was used in winter festivals over New Year. Christians see the Christmas tree as a symbol of Everlasting life with God.

Christmas Wreath

Some believe that initially wreaths were hung on doors in Ancient Rome to represent victory. In Christianity, the Christmas wreath was used to symbolize Christ. The circular shape, with no beginning or end, represents eternity or life never ending.

Snow Globes

Snow Globes was invented in 1900 by “accident” by Erwin Perzy

He tried to make a lightbulb shine brighter by putting water and white flakes in the globe to make it reflect more light.

With this he got the idea of a snow globe.

  

Christmas Stockings

Folklore tells the story of a nobleman whose wife had died, leaving him penniless with three daughters. On Christmas, Saint Nichola s came to their home and saw the girls' stockings hanging to dry above the fireplace. He then filled them with gold.
