Christmas Stair Decor

5 years ago

Last week I shared with you beautiful small Christmas trees, and to keep with the Christmas spirit, I thought I'd share with you beautifully decorated railings.  Decorated stair railings add a touch of warmth and Christmas magic to your home.  And it's a great way to "redecorate" your home!


There are so many different ways to decorate your stair railing, from garland wrapped fully onto the handrail, loosely attached to the handrail, hanging your stockings or Christmas cards, etc.  There are so many colors and styles you can choose for your garland, fun and whimsical to traditional and elegant.  


So enjoy these beautifully decorated railings for Christmas!
