The familiar tradition of trimming the Christmas tree is a way for families to introduce their kids to the holiday and get them helping with its preparations.
But believe it or not, there are a few different techniques for how best to string lights on your Christmas tree. Do you hang Christmas tree lights horizontally or vertically? Do you go top-to-bottom, or bottom-to-top?

But believe it or not, there are a few different techniques for how best to string lights on your Christmas tree. Do you hang Christmas tree lights horizontally or vertically? Do you go top-to-bottom, or bottom-to-top?
Maybe you'll find an even more efficient way to tackle the annual task.
(Tip: Generally, plan for about 100 Christmas lights per foot; a 6-foot tree would get 600 lights.)



——HOW TO HANG CHRISTMAS TREE LIGHTS HORIZONTALLY
Hanging Christmas lights horizontally is the most widely used technique when it comes to decorating the tree. It's pretty self-explanatory, but if this is your first time hanging lights, you'll want to follow our directions:
1.First, before you decorate, plug each set of lights in to make sure all the bulbs are working. (This will save you a lot of stress later.)
2.Starting at the top or bottom of your tree (depending solely on preference), wrap the lights over and under the branches of the tree.
3.You can mix things up by placing some lights "deeper" into the tree than others, and by alternating the patterns so that it looks more organic. Get creative with it, and have fun!
(Tip: When you have to connect plugs, hide the eyesore by fastening the area to a branch with floral wire.)

——HOW TO HANG CHRISTMAS TREE LIGHTS VERTICALLY

Vertical approach is a trend that started circulating a couple years ago. This method ensures that the tree shines brightly, because the lights are less likely to be covered up by other branches. It's also a whole lot easier to take apart once the holiday's over!
1. Plug the lights in to make sure all the bulbs are working.
2. Start with the plugless end of your lights at the top or bottom of the tree and let the lights lay vertically like a seam.
3. Each time you reach the top or bottom, turn the lights back the other way until you have a sideways "S" pattern around the whole tree.
(Tip: Hang shiny ornaments in the middle to help reflect the light for more depth.)

——HOW TO HANG CHRISTMAS LIGHTS TOP TO BOTTOM

String lights from top to bottom because plug is at the end of the strand and closer to the bottom of the tree and outlet. If you run out of lights, it's easier to spread them out this way—and it's easier to add more lights to the bottom versus the top of the tree.
1. Plug the lights in to make sure all the bulbs are working.
2. Starting at the top of the tree, intertwine the lights on top of and under branches.

3. Work your way down and around the tree, hanging lights in the back as well.
4. When you reach the bottom, hide any extra lights behind the tree.
5. If you want to add more lights, simply do another pass, starting again at the top and working your way down.
(Tip: Make sure you wrap the lights loosely on each branch for the best overall affect.)
