Yes, it is finally time to hang some ornaments. Time to bring out all of those precious heirloom ornaments, handmade ornaments, mixed with a careful hand, these are the touches that give the tree personality. Always hang your largest ornaments first, depending on the size,then work your way down to the smallest of ornaments. Any really large, oversized ornaments could be hung before you ribbon and garland, but most ornaments are easily hung after ribbon and garlands. Take a step back once and a while to view your tree, this will help you space your ornaments. Ornament hooks work fine, but for large, heavy ornaments, wire works best, just wire them to each tree limb.Thin ribbon works well in households with small children and pets, as hooks might be a safety hazard. Just hang each ornament from a small piece of ribbon. Continue hanging ornaments and balance them out throughout the tree, hanging some ornaments on the inner tree limbs to give the tree depth. Have fun adding to your collection in the years to come.
Merry Christmas and Happy Decorating!
