When it comes to decorating your Christmas tree, anything goes (hey, it’s your tree!). BUT, if you want to get super technical about it, that’s an option, too!
When HGTV’s "The Cousins" visited our show, they revealed exactly how many lights, how many ornaments and how much garland you need for the most perfect Christmas tree.
Use 100 lights per foot of tree, Anthony Carrino suggests. And he likes to stick the lights in the tree as deep as possible so the tree has depth and glows outward.
Oh, and whatever you do, don’t save your tree topper for last! You’ll risk ruining all of your other hard work.
Pro tip: When you take your lights off at the end of the season, wrap them around a cord wrapper, so they won’t be a hassle to untangle next year!
For more lighting tips from "The Cousins" (like the two words you should be looking out for on a box of lights) watch the video below:
ORNAMENTS & GARLAND
For a full and festive look, use about 20 ornaments per vertical foot of tree.
Pro tip: If you have pets or small children, don't put breakable ornaments at the bottom of tree!
As for garland, the "Cousins" suggest using about 10 feet of ribbon per foot of tree.
And look, we made a handy cheat sheet for you!
