How To Make Your Own Artificial Christmas Tree Without Lights

Creating an artificial Christmas tree without lights is a great idea for many reasons. It does not take up much of your time, it can be done in sections so you can even start on another part of your yard while you are finishing the other sections, and it gives you the opportunity to create something special rather than something plain. But before you get started, there are some things that you need to know.

First, when you are doing an artificial Christmas tree without lights you need to do a few things to prepare your yard for it. You need to clear all of the grass and weeds and make sure that there are no trash cans or other debris on your lawn. This will prevent the wires from getting snagged on anything and interfere with the light that you place on the tree. You also want to make sure that the power is turned off.

Now that you have cleared your yard of any debris and built the tree, you are ready to start building. The first thing that you need to do is to dig the hole where the artificial Christmas tree will go in. If it is a smaller tree, you may only need a few inches of dirt. If you are putting out a larger tree, you will need at least three feet of dirt. Make sure that the dirt is moist and not dry before you put the lights in it, as you will need some way to keep the lights from getting tangled with the dirt.

When you have the hole dug, it is time to place the lights inside of it. Start by wrapping each light around a post or something sturdy and secure. It is a good idea to wrap the lights around the post and then the tree. Try to cover the tree and post with a plastic sheet so that the lights are not exposed. This will keep the lights from getting tangled and will also keep dirt and other things from getting inside of them.

Wires Or Cables

Now it is time to hang the tree without lights. Hang the actual fake Christmas tree from the center of the string or cable. If you are using smaller wires or cables, make sure that they are hung from a sturdy support and they are not dangled on anything. Hanging the tree without lights can sometimes be tricky, but if you follow these steps you should have no problems.

After you have installed the tree without lights, it is time to hook the string or cable around the branches. You may have to use a couple of brads to keep the lights secure. Hook the lights up to the artificial tree and then bring them back down. Make sure that you attach the extra cable before you hang the tree again. It is probably best to attach the extra cable about six inches behind the hangs so that it does not get stuck in the drips or snags.

Once you have the lights on the artificial Christmas tree, you need to start putting the strings or cords on. Start by putting the longest string down on the longest branch. Then take the shortest string and put it on the next longest branch. Repeat this process until all the strings are connected. When you get to the end of the strings, tie the last string to the bottom of the artificial branch.

Finally, you are all set and ready to enjoy your fake Christmas tree without lights. Of course, there is one last thing that you need to do before you hang your artificial Christmas tree without lights. Before you hang your tree, get a friend or family member to go through the tree to check for any broken or damaged parts.

Final Words

If you find any broken or damaged pieces, make sure that you replace them before you hang the artificial Christmas tree without lights. Remember, it is important to make your tree look nice. If there are any damaged parts, you will not be able to get that beautiful snowy look that you want.
