Well not yet. At least not yet at my house. However, I did decorate the bannister (where we used to hang the stockings) for Christmas. I was cruising the internet looking at beautifully decorated staircases and here is what I was drooling over:
I love it! But being short on time and not having the supplies to make it or having an outlet nearby to use lights, I knew I couldn’t make that one. But I really liked the full, lush look of it. And it inspired me to come up with something using what I already had. I found some white poinsettia garland in my box of “I’ll find a way to use this some year” Christmas decorations. I think I got it at an after-Christmas clearance sale at Jo-Ann. I took that garland and wrapped and wrapped and wrapped, and here it is:
I love the full look of it, it didn’t cost a dime and it sparkles! Since it is a light color, there’s no need for lights, yay! (but you can bet if there was a nearby outlet, there would be lights on it!) How are you decorating your bannisters this year? If you don’t have a mantel, where do you hang your stockings? I’m working on a new idea on what I’m doing with those this year!
