Make sure that you are not hanging all the ornaments on the tip of the branches of your tree. They should be placed inside to give your tree a shinny look from the inside.  You can also start by keeping the filler ornaments spread around all the branches of the tree.  This includes the color shinny balls which by the way can be found at any store in various colors and designs.
