Who says you need a massive, ceiling-reaching tree to bring the Christmas spirit into your home? A 4-foot Christmas tree can make a charming, festive centerpiece or an adorable addition to your holiday decor. It's compact, easy to handle, and perfect for small spaces or as a second tree. Of course, the best part about Christmas tree decorating is that there are no hard and fast rules—you can let your creativity shine and decorate it as you see fit!

Lights for a 4 Foot Tree

Lighting can make or break your Christmas tree decor, and yes, even smaller trees deserve a grand lighting scheme. We recommend using about 100 LED lights per every 2 feet of tree.

For a 4 foot tree, aim for at least 200 lights. Decide if you'd prefer a subtler or more dazzling lighting effect.

The Lumineo Cluster lights, for example, lend a beautiful twinkle to your tree, while having more of these lights in a smaller space will certainly create a stronger impact. You may also consider novelty lights to add a little extra sparkle.
