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|
|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.
