This seems to be the week everyone is trimming their Christmas trees, so I thought I would end my posts this week with a little tutorial of sorts on how to decorate a Christmas tree using tried and true principles of design. It doesn’t matter if your tree is full of shiny new ornaments this year or decorated with sentimental ornaments handed down from family or even a kid-friendly tree hung with handmade ornaments these principles will work to make your tree the best it can be.
My tree is up, but only has lights on it so far, so I can’t use it as an example (I’m sure it’ll pop up on the blog later) but I’ve created this simplistic little tree in Photoshop to demonstrate.

Is your tree up yet? I’d love to hear what makes your tree special each year.
I’m finishing up a final project for school and then it’s time to jump-in to Christmas. Can’t wait!
