You’ve been hanging string lights on your Christmas tree all wrong – the right way makes the tree look brighter

November 23, 2021

THERE is a new decorating tip that promises to save you time this holiday season.

A home and style expert said the trick will change the way you adorn your Christmas tree. 


Nina, who markets herself as a “go-to girl for affordable finds,” shared her Christmas tree decorating hack on TikTok. 

Rather than walking around your Christmas tree wrapping the lights horizontally, she suggested hanging them vertically. 

First, she said to place the end of the lights without the pronged plug at the top of the tree.

“If you have a tree topper that needs to be plugged in, this will be very useful,” she noted. 

“Then string them vertically. 

"This will allow you to use fewer lights, it’ll appear brighter on your tree, and [is] easier to remove at the end of the season,” she concluded.

Nina’s followers were understandably impressed with her trick. 

“The fact that I would literally hug my tree to give myself the other end,” one person wrote with a facepalm emoji.

Another person commented that she is “really sad” that she didn’t see the tip prior to decorating her tree. 

As the holidays approach, many TikTokers are sharing their decorating hacks.

A Canadian interior designer previously told her followers how to make their trees look more festive. 

She advised people to string three-ball ornaments together with zip ties before hanging them on the tree to produce a fuller look. 

A third decorating guru revealed that people have been hanging their ornaments wrong. 

Instead of using one end of a hook to secure the ornament and the other end to latch onto the tree, she said people should take the open end and loop it back through the hole on the top of the ornament.

This makes a full circle hook that will more securely fit the tree branch.
