  1. Determine the amount of needed garland

    Plan to use at least 9 feet of ribbon garland for each foot of the Christmas tree’s height.

  2. Wrap the tree

    Wrap the ribbon around the entire tree with some slack so that it is not very tightly wound. For ribbon without wire, twist it occasionally and secure in place with small wires. Leave some space between each row of garland.

  3. Adjust the garland

    After you have wrapped the tree, step back and check for any required adjustments. Make these as needed.

    How do you hang Christmas tree ribbon?

    A:

    Hanging Christmas tree ribbon is a matter of personal taste, but you typically drape ribbon around the Christmas tree starting from the bottom working your way to the top, tucking in any loose ends. You can use Christmas tree ribbon to hang your ornaments simply by removing the manufacturer-provided hooks, and then tying on a 5-inch piece of ribbon. This method helps ornaments stay on the tree better.
