How many ornaments are needed for a 6.5 foot tree?
|Tree Height||Light Coverage||Heavy Coverage|
|6.5 feet||70 pieces||105 pieces|
|7.5 feet||105 pieces||140 pieces|
|9-10 feet||175 pieces||210 pieces|
A 6 foot Christmas tree will need at least 128 pieces, a 7 foot Christmas tree will need at least 196 decorations, and an 8 foot Christmas tree will need a minimum of 212.
A good rule of thumb is around 100 lights for every foot and a half of tree, or at least 300 lights (15 metres) for a 6ft tree.
How many lights do I need? For the best coverage on your unlit Christmas tree, about 100 bulbs are recommended for every two feet of tree. If you have a 6 foot artificial Christmas tree, you'll need a string of 300 LEDs to light up your tree perfectly.
6 – 6.5 ft Trees- This size tree is a safe bet if you don't think you'll get around to measuring the height of your ceiling. Trees this height would fit and look great in a compact apartment or small home.
“A good rule of thumb is 100 lights for every foot-and-a-half of tree,” according to Lowe's. But Better Homes & Gardens recommends using three 100-light sets for every foot of a tree's height.
Add ribbon before ornaments
Begin your tree decorating by adding lights and then the ribbon. Ornaments should always go on last. If you attempt to add ribbon after hanging ornaments, you run the risk of breaking ornaments as you style your tree. Now it's time to grab your scissors and start ribboning.
The minimum number of lights for a 6-foot tree is 600 lights (or six strands of 100-bulb Christmas lights)—but you can go up to 1200 lights, depending on whether you want the lighting or the ornaments to be the star of your Christmas tree.
For trees under 9 feet, we recommend using 10-15 standard size ornaments per foot. If your tree is 9 feet or taller, we recommend 12-20 ornaments per foot.
Buy big ornaments from Dollar Tree and/or 99 Cent Store and hang it further away from the tip of the branches to make it look fuller. Then top it above the tip of the tree to make it look higher.
Is a 6ft Christmas tree too small?
Choose the Right Height.
|Christmas Tree Height||Recommendations|
|UNDER 6 FEET||Tabletops, bedrooms, kid's rooms, and small spaces|
|6 TO 6 ½ FEET||Areas with low ceilings|
|7 TO 7 ½ FEET||Standard 8- to 9-foot ceilings|
|8 TO 9 FEET||Rooms with high ceilings|
For a 6ft tree we recommend 300 bulbs or 15 metres of lights.
Easy answer: Start with at least 100 mini lights per foot of tree plus an extra set of lights to hang inside the tree along the trunk.
Let's recap how to gauge how much light you need for a space. Multiply your room square footage by the footcandle requirement. For example, a 100-square foot living room, which needs 20 foot candles, will need 2,000 lumens. A 100-square foot dining room, which needs 40 foot-candles, will need 4,000 lumens.
Pre-lit Christmas trees provide for a much quicker and easier tree setup so you can get straight to the fun part – decorating! Unlit trees offer more creative freedom with decorating as you can choose the color of your lights as well as the size of the bulbs while also choosing how to arrange the lights on your tree.
Standard: Standard Christmas trees are the most common size and range from 7'–7.5' tall, fitting nicely in most homes with ceilings of about 9'.
Choose the Right Christmas Tree Height.
|5 TO 5½ FEET||Smaller living areas|
|6 TO 6½ FEET||Homes with low ceilings|
|7 TO 7½ FEET||Standard 8- to 9-foot ceilings|
|8 TO 12 FEET||Rooms with high ceilings|
Don't overcrowd your Christmas tree with too many lights. It is not good for the tree and doesn't improve the look. Sometimes – fewer can be much better.
- Place the Christmas tree and fluff the branches.
- Put the lights on.
- Add your tree topper.
- Start adding decorations.
- Hang your key baubles.
- Add picks and sprays.
- Showcase those extra-special ornaments.
- Time for finishing touching touches.
Always start with the lights!
My Christmas tree is pre-lit. But, obviously, if you have a real tree, you already know you need to put the lights on first! In both cases, check that all the lights are working before you proceed with the decorations.
How long should a strand of Christmas lights be on a 6 foot tree?
|Tree Height||Average Number of Strands||Strands for a Brighter Tree|
|5 feet||5 strands or 500 lights||6 strands or 600 lights|
|6 feet||6 strands or 600 lights||7 strands or 700 lights|
|7 feet||7 strands or 700 lights||8 strands or 800 lights|
|8 feet||8 strands or 800 lights||9 strands or 900 lights|
Use this equation to learn how to wrap a tree with lights: 4'H trunk / 3" spacing = 16 x 2' circumference = 32' of lighting. 3'L branch / 3" spacing = 12 x 6" circumference = 6' of lighting per branch. Total lighted feet will be approximately 56' for the trunk and four branches.
The most popular LED Christmas light colors are warm white or cool white and the decision for many people simply comes down to preference and color scheme. Cozy and Inviting: Warm White led lights illuminate indoor spaces with a soft glow that is most often associated with traditional mini lights.
For trees under 9 feet, we would recommend using 10-15 standard size ornaments per foot. If your tree is 9 feet or taller, we recommend 12-20 ornaments per foot. We also recommended that you vary the size of your ornaments, and to spread them out throughout the tree.
Ornaments should hang freely, (not resting on branches) evenly spaced around the Christmas tree to create a balanced look. Another thing to consider in achieving a balanced look is the selection of your Christmas ornaments.
