If you purchased an artificial Christmas tree for your house, it's important to know that it will need a little shaping in order to get that realistic look. We have laid out a few easy steps for you to follow to have that artificial tree looking like the real thing.
Before we begin, make sure your tree is in the desired spot. It will be harder to move the tree once it's set up. Artificial Christmas trees do vary, but if your tree comes in different sections, start with the bottom section and follow the steps below. After completing the bottom section, repeat for the remaining sections of the tree.
If you have a pre-lit artificial Christmas tree, do a quick test to make sure all the lights are working by simply plugging in your tree. If a few bulbs are out, get replacement bulbs and fix them before you continue with shaping your tree.
If your artificial tree is large, it's best and more safe for you to shape the top section first while not on the base yet. See our safety guide for other ways to stay safe while decorating for the holiday season.
As you go through this process, take a minute to look at it and make sure it is shaped uniformly and it appears natural. If you see any gaps, adjust them as needed.
