How To Put Candle Lights On A Christmas Tree - Vintage Style Tree Decorating

158 ratings | 2511 views
Candle string lights add an old-fashioned charm to Christmas trees and are much safer than the truly old-fashioned tradition of using real candles. In this video I will show you how to put candle lights on a tree, and give you a look at the final results. Though this 7.5 ft tall (5.5 ft wide) tree usually gets anywhere from 700 - 1,250 light count - the subtle beauty of only 100 candle lights is just enough to warmly illuminate the branches and give it an old world glow. 2 sets of 50 count Warm White LED candle string lights (in ivory coloring) where used to achieve this look - you can find them on Amazon here: https://amzn.to/2q85pIV

Hiiii Christopher. I went looking for these lights, found them on Amazon. Looked at the reviews ... WHYYYY is it 99% of the people can't make the candles stand vertically on the branches??? And they posted pics too! ... could not avert my eyes (lol). Other than bending the tree-tips and angling the candles, is there some trick you're doing? Do you find that after a period of time the candles slump over and need regular adjusting, or do they stay put the whole season?

I noticed the same thing lol. I assume it is just because they don't take the extra time to adjust them - just like when you see artificial trees in stores that aren't fluffed to their full potential. The candles are really light weight, and just like placing vintage glass birds with clips on branches, you just choose the straightest branches and clip it on - adjusting it as necessary (though with artificial trees you can just bend the branches). I found it easiest to put the candles on the branches so they are close to what I want, and then adjust them after a few candles are on the tree because the movement of the wire can sometimes make the previous clipped candle crooked again. With fresh trees, most likely you will have to adjust them a little as the season goes on because their branches usually continue to slowly settle over time. I haven't had this problem on my artificial tree at all :) Thanks for your questions! :) - Christopher

These look amazing! Do you think they would look nice if I added them after my fairy lights?
Christopher Hiedeman (19 days ago)
Hi Grant, I think ivory is the only color they come in (if you followed the link to these exact candle lights) :) -Christopher

+Christopher Hiedeman thanks for the reply! I noticed you said you bought them in ivory but I can't see a colour option?
Christopher Hiedeman (22 days ago)
Hi Grant, Thanks! Yes, I think they would look nice together. Just make sure the fairy lights are the same light color (These candle lights are warm white). Thanks for your question! :) -Christopher

Thanks! I put a link in the video description that will bring you directly to the candle lights on Amazon. I used two sets on this tree - each set has 50 candles lights, so there is a total of 100 candle lights on this tree. Thanks for your question! :) -Christopher
