Staircases offer prime real estate for Christmas decor. During the holidays, a staircase without something seasonal adorning it always feels a little bare. Every year I like to do something a little different for mine. Everyone knows the tradition of decorating a staircase with garland, but there are lots of ways to add your own spin to this look or even do something else entirely. These 10 Christmas decorating ideas are stylish, fun, and quite easy to recreate. Perhaps one will speak to you.
Christmas Decorating Ideas for Stairs
1 A red ribbon woven through some beautiful garland adds a pop of color to this banister. Fun elements such as the snowflakes and ice skates bring extra charm.
2 Flameless candles in alternating designs cast a beautiful (safe) glow leading up the outer edges of the staircase.
3 Another way to adorn your staircase for Christmas is by hanging some lovely wreaths along the outside leading upward.
4 Falling snowflakes look chic and pretty attached to the spindles of a staircase, giving the effect that they are, indeed, falling.
5 Stockings look great hanging on more than just a fireplace. Hang stylish ones from garland for a staircase with character.
6 Add some coastal flair to your staircase with twisted rope, starfish, and greens. See the tutorial for this DIY project at the link below.

7 Try thinking outside the box in the way of garland and color schemes for Christmas. If you love orange, decorate with orange!
8 This garland made of magnolias, cedar boughs, and lavender thistle creates a grand effect adorning this banister from top to bottom. Lights and bows add some luxury and style to it.
9 Get creative with the elements in your garland, such as using fruit as a colorful accent. This elegant garland could last from Thanksgiving through Christmas.
10Your banister offers the perfect place to display Christmas cards and photos. Simply use clothes pins to clip your art to the garland.
