Red and White Christmas Tree
Red, white, and a touch of silver make a lovely, bright Christmas tree. Children will especially like this one, as a key feature of the decoration could be striped candy canes.
Coloured or white lights
A mix of tinsel: red, silver, white, or red and white striped.
Red baubles - a mix of sizes and shapes
White baubles - a mix of sizes and shapes
Round silver baubles
Some additional personal tree decoration
The trick to a successful Christmas tree is building up the layers in the right order from the inside to the outside
First, arrange your lights on the inner branches of the tree.
Once the lights are on, put on the tinsel. Try to alternate tinsel colours if you are using more than one colour.
Start putting on the baubles. The larger ones should go on at the bottom of the tree, and the smaller ones towards the top.
Try to alternate colours and shapes, so each branch doesn't neighbour one that is exactly the same.
Add the unusual shaped baubles and feature items.
Add your special decorations, candy canes, or chocolates.
Switch the lights on and enjoy your tree!
