  • Definitely tinsel. It makes the lights reflect in a lot of different colors and directions.

  • I don't use tinsel. It's messy, and unless it's done right ends up covering up all the ornaments. I put on a lot of lights and ornaments, sometimes some bows.

  • I think it looks pretty, but it's far too big of a mess/pain. So unless I'm REALLY in the mood, I skip the tinsel.

  • No Tinsel. I have pets, if they swallow it they could die.
