This TikTok Hack Helps Fill in Christmas Tree Gaps

A woman holds up tinsel.

You’ve decorated the tree, but now you’ve started to notice some gaps popping up in between branches. Don’t worry, you won’t need to take off your ornaments and re-fluff with this clever hack.

TikTok content creator Nikki Mansch showcased a clever trick that uses garland to fill in those bits of open space in your Christmas tree. Not only is it genius, but it’s also super easy.

In the video, Mansch has purchased some ruffled pink and gold glitter garland and explains that you can use it to disguise white spots after your tree is decorated. You’ll cut the garland into five-inch sections, shake off any bits and pieces that are loose after cutting, and then, tuck the little “pom poms” as she calls them into the spots where the tree looks bare.

Fill out your Christmas tree with this garland.

Because the garland is flexible, you can make it fix basically anywhere in the tree. Plus, thanks to its fluffy design, it looks like fun little pops of color and glitter inside the tree and not at all like a way to camouflage something.

Garland isn’t the only thing you can use, though. Our editor-in-chief, Jason Fitzpatrick, has been using this hack for a while. However, he takes a more traditional, classic approach and instead of utilizing tinsel or garland, he points to faux poinsettias as a great way to fill in space.

Now that you know how to take care of those sparse spots, here’s another trick for making your Christmas tree look even brighter.
