FAQ’s Christmas Tree Lights

Are LED lights better for Christmas trees?

LED lights last much longer and are also more energy efficient. They don’t get hot or burn out like other bulbs so they’re safer to use too.

How many lights do I need for my Christmas tree?

As a general guide its recommended you use at least 100 bulbs per 1ft of tree so a 7ft tree would require a minimum of 700 LEDs.

What goes first on a Christmas tree?

Always put the lights on your tree first and then add your decorations.

Should Christmas tree lights start at top or bottom of tree?

Start at the bottom of your tree and then zigzag them through the tree rather than trying to wrap them around the tree. Place some lights deeper into the branches and place some closer to the front, making sure you blend the cable in with the tree branches so it’s not noticeable.
