One of my Christmas tree decorating tricks/tips is to tie bulbs directly on to the tree using floral wire or twist ties. This accomplishes 4 things; it hides helps the bulbs look more "natural" as if they are sprouting from the tree itself, it negates the need for unattractive hooks, it gives you more control over where you can put them, but best of all, it secures them in place so small hands can't move them!

  • bellandpistolBrilliant lady... So doing this!
  • dkippPipe cleaners work really well and they are soft
  • jditrimares@dkipp pipe cleaners would be great! I just don't ever seem I have them around!
  • littlemama1980Good idea! I don't think it would work for a 10 month old though, which is why I think we are skipping the tree this year. :-(
