    Well all the ornaments are on the first tree.
    Someone asked me how many ornaments ,never really knew so I counted this year total is 255.
    I've never found or been able to hang a garland on this tree that I was happy with so I just cram every inch with ornaments.










    Going to move on to the Train Layout Tree and go back and finish the rest of the decorations in the Study later.





    Just about finished with the ornaments on the top section then I'll put it in place and hopefully have the tree done this afternoon.

    Looks great so far!

    Out of interest, is it not common in the USA to wrap the tree with tinsel before adding ornaments?

    I was always taught to put lights on first, then ornaments (in our family, we hang ornaments (and put lights) on the inside of the tree, not just the outside), and last comes the tinsel, garland, beads or whatever you might be using for the finishing touches.

    That's interesting, lol, I always put the lights on first, followed by the tinsel. I guess the outcome is still just as good! :D

    It depends upon how you define tinsel. I always put the lights on first then the garland or beads and then the ornaments. When we used tinsel, it was put on last, but then we didn't use garland or beads. It also depends upon how full of a tree you use. With a very full tree - you don't really decorate the inside of the tree
