4. Step 1. Determine The Size Of Your Floating Christmas Tree
First, you must determine the size of the Christmas tree and find out the required number of Christmas balls.
Just put the balls on the table in front of you. Start with the highest ball, the top of the tree. Leave about 20 centimeters between this ball and the ring shape. Think about the height at which the other rows should hang. Should the balls be close together? Or you want to leave more air between the rows?
In the picture on the top right, you can see a floating Christmas tree, which is 120 centimeters tall and made up of a total of 49 Christmas balls. Opt for a small to a medium sized tree and shorter distances between rows. It’s worth experimenting and deciding which dimensions would fit best in your room.
