• Put all the decorations in front of you before you start, so you know what you’re working with. This will allow you to visualize how you can put it together.
• Start by layering with fillers. These are the elements you have the most of but they are not central elements, they are background elements. They should have color and texture to give the tree consistency. These fillers can also be recycled from previous trees.
• You can find ornaments in any color or style you want to suit your style and theme. Nadia uses a combination of fillers, faux flowers, beads, and ribbons to give it a real touch and add depth.
• There are NO rules, just have fun creating! Your Holi-Tree should represent you and your style
