    Exactly. But any ideas on how to make it look it's best - to throw whole batches on just a few places here and there, to place them along each branch to cover as much of the tree as possible with single threads, or do something else?

    Tinsel is not very popular anymore. When I was a kid, everyone's tree had tinsel and it was sold in hugh displays in the stores. Now the drug store sets out a few boxes at most!

    That's most likely because it's hard to remove from artificial trees. But it has been and always will be beautiful.

    My family used to decorate with tinsel all the time, it was the look of the '80s! It's still nice though I haven't ever bought it for my tree.

    It is really hard to get off artificial trees. I would only recomend it for real trees. I have heard of people putting it around cloth napkins and making a loose knot for sort of a napkin ring. I bet it would make a dinner table really festive. I haven't done it myself.
