1. Start by buying matching balls. Pick a color or two and buy a few boxes of plain, old, cheap balls. Once your lights are on the tree, start hanging these balls in the inside branch of the tree. In the end, it's going to give your tree the look of being packed full of ornaments and it's also going to give you a cohesive background that tricks the eye into thinking you actually do have a "theme" to your tree.

3. With this beautiful, designer-style base, start adding your well-loved ornaments, but organize first! To give your tree incredible visual interest and really show-off your collection, sort your ornaments by theme and hang them together. I put all my gingerbread man ornaments together in one spot on the tree, then move to the next spot and have a little Santa section and so on. You've probably read how impactful it is to display your collectibles together and this concept goes for your tree too. Don't think you have a themed collection? Guess again. I was surprised to discover the number of Santa ornaments I had once I started making a pile.
