Tip of the Day: How many ornaments do I put on a Christmas tree?

Christmas Tree Decorate with Snowflakes,ribbon, and balls

Since we have moved into November, many of the upcoming Tips of the Day will involve Christmas. Today’s tip is one of the most fundamental to decorating for Christmas. How many ornaments do you need to purchase to decorate your Christmas tree? As a general guide, there are two rules to follow. For a tree up to nine feet, use ten ornaments per foot. If the tree is over nine feet, use between twelve to sixteen ornaments per foot. In a table, it would look like this:

Tree Height Number of Ornaments
5′ 50 ornaments
6′ 60 ornaments
7′ 70 ornaments
8′ 80 ornaments
9′ 90 ornaments
10′ 120 – 160 ornaments
12′ 144 – 192 ornaments
14′ 168 – 224 ornaments

Remember, these are general guidelines on where to start. Depending on the size of the ornaments selected and the desired density of the placement, this could vary by a great deal.
