Christmas Tree Lights Ideas

Whether you have a tree lined garden pathway, a traditional conifer, or you’d like something a little more quirky, Christmas trees are central to every festive celebration. We’ve put together some tricks and tips to help you light up your trees this season. We’ll show you Christmas lights for your outdoor and indoor trees and suggest a few alternative ideas. Now to make your trees gleam...
Matchmaker

Make your garden glow this Christmas! No matter what size or shape they are, trees are one of the most effective ways to spread some sparkle in seconds. All you need are a few strings of lights and you're away. Bare string lights compliment deciduous trees, with no leaves in sight, wrap your outdoor Christmas tree lights from trunk to the branches for a fantastically full look. More densely packed firs or conifers tend to absorb lots more lights so be prepared to double up on bulbs. Opt for a golden hue for a warm nostalgic feel, white for a crisp modern tone (which looks spectacular in the snow). For those throwback memories, a classic multi coloured tree is a must-have.

Take it indoors

Whether your tree is the focal point or a piece of an altogether larger scheme it's the ideal place to introduce a magical glow to your home. Plump for a real fir or a spruce and you'll have enough depth to weave your Christmas tree lights deep into the centre, snaking throughout creating a gorgeous gleam from within. Artificial trees tend to be rather sparse along the branches, so you’ll need to hang your lights from the outer edges so they'll stay in place. Don’t be afraid to embrace a colourful theme! They can ooze personality if planned thoughtfully. Team whites with an accent colour (as seen below in pink) and your Christmas tree can be festive & fun. We love to see a hint of sparkle, bronze or silver metallics work wonderfully with white walls and subtle lights. Dark cables blend better in your tree, however, a clear cable can be a lovely feature if worked with light coloured decorations. Before you shop, read our guide for how many lights you'll need for your Christmas tree.

Alternatives

From wall hung branches, fairy light tree silhouettes to twig trees there's plenty of options for those who want something a little less conventional, plus it saves on space!
