How to decorate a Christmas Tree professionally
At Home has the most amazing Christmas Decor. It makes it really easy to do a DIY Christmas Tree.
Step 1: Shopping for your Christmas Tree
This year I wanted to do a flock Christmas Tree and I wanted to do a 12 foot Christmas tree and I found the perfect one. I got the 12ft Pre-Lit Keyser Flocked Pine Christmas Tree. I love this flocked Christmas Tree it is very full and the it’s a perfect size for this space.
Step 2: Shopping for Christmas Tree Decorations
One of the best things about the At Home Store is that it is very easy to shop for Christmas tree decor. At Home stores are set up in different categories and different themes. For my living room Christmas Tree I wanted a fun pop of color and I love the Lavish & Luxe line.

Step 3: Set up your Christmas Tree
When you are setting up your Christmas Tree be sure to make sure you fluff it. I did need a 8 foot ladder to decorate this Christmas Tree.
Step 4: Big Items in the tree first
I love all these different size and shape large items that I got to put through out the tree. Some of my favorites are the 6IN PLASTIC KISMIT/BALL ORN, 8IN PLASTIC BALL ORN, 11IN SHEER BUTTERFLY W/CLIP, Champagne Flower Burst- Large.
I also love this Gold Gift Decor Box.
Step 5: Medium Size Items
I like to get at least 3 of each of the medium size items. I love these different medium size Christmas Decor because they are all different shapes and they all have a very different look but they still all work really good together.
Step 6: Add Filler items and Ornaments
To fill in some of the random holes in the tree I like to use filler products. Filler products can be boxes of ornaments, ribbon or different items that are only a few inches in size.
Step 7: Top of the tree
I like to use stems and branches on the top of my Christmas Tree. I think it adds so much. It will make your DIY Christmas tree look like a professional did it.
Step 8: Finish off your Christmas Decorations
To finish up your DIY Christmas tree be sure to add in some Christmas decorations.You want to make sure that you’re space is totally complete.
I love how this years tree turned out! What is your favorite thing about my living room DIY Christmas Tree?
