How do you fluff artificial trees/greenery
This seems like a stupid question, but what's the best way to fluff artificial trees? I did my little white tree last night and found myself kind of scratching my head about it. Do you keep the branches straight or curved? Curve up or down? All the same direction or mix it up? I ended up curving them slightly up and it looked OK. In nature, you see all variations, depending on the tree and the conditions. My main aim was to make it look full and hide the gaps--this was a 3' little cheap drugstore tree, so no great assets to begin with! With my big tree I tend to twist branch tips up to help hold the ornaments, but I always feel a little unsure about how to proceed. With garland, do you fluff everything out for maximum fullness, or angle it in one direction?
It always seems like I fuss forever but my results leave something to be desired, so I'm looking for some basic tips. Thanks!
