Do you love red and green for Christmas? We do! This classic red and green Christmas tree will give you some fresh ideas for the upcoming season. It will be here soon!
This is a large tree at about 12' in ht. The bottom of this tree is about 7' in width. It's not your typical living area Christmas tree, but if you have one this size, you know it takes a tall ladder to decorate. Be safe!
Large wooden signs make quite a statement on this red and green Christmas tree. Below we will list some of the items used on the tree.
Rachel and Carrie decorated the tree for the Trendy Tree retail store. So, if you're in the area, stop by and visit. We're located on Marion St, right off the square in Pontotoc, MS.

Tips on Hanging Ornaments
Different textures and sizes of ornaments were placed on the red green tree. Place the larger ornaments toward the median of the tree and smaller ones further out. Ornaments should be hanging freely and not resting on branches.

Tips on Sprays and Pick
Picks and sprays were added to the red and green Christmas tree after they had been "fluffed" out. Rarely is there ever a case that a spray can be removed from a box and placed on a tree without spreading the leaves, bending here and there. Giving it a more natural shape for instance.
Usually the sprays can just be slid along the limbs of the tree. You can always bend a tree twig around them if needed, but remember, you have to take this tree down too!

Tips on Placing Signs
Remember that ours was a very large tree and could handle big signs fairly easily. Always secure signs well and never just nestle in the tree. If you purchase a sign that is too large once you start to decorate, you can always for instance incorporate it into other decorations in the room. You can use easels to place signs on hearths, mantels or tabletops. You can use them for door hangers by just adding a pretty bow.
It's always difficult to know how much garland you need for a tree. It all depends on the size of the tree. But a good place to start is 9' of garland for every foot of Christmas tree. That particular calculation would have been way off for this red green Christmas tree since it's wide. Always buy more than you think you will need. You can always use it in other places throughout the house.
Ribbon is a good alternative to garland and much less expensive.
We have more trees to show you and some of them will go into detail more about how to add ribbon to your tree. The red green Christmas tree wasn't quite finished when the video was made but you can get the gist of the style of decorating that was used. Combine classic green colors of lime and emerald and shades of red. The classic red green Christmas tree lends itself well to old fashioned Christmas decorations that are sure to please.
