Amazing Staircase Idea for Christmas

4 Materials
When decorating for the holidays we shouldn’t neglect the stairs. In my home my stairs are smack in the middle of the great room. It’s one of the first things you see when you walk into my house. So in my home, I make it the star attraction. Here is how you can elevate your staircase to show stopper status for the Christmas holiday.
Make a statement with your stairs.
First thing’s first, clean the stairs. So If you have white risers, like I do, you totally know what abuse it gets with daily usage. So I first begun by cleaning and freshening up the paint before I would do anything. The last thing you would want to do is decorate dirty stairs. It’s not cute and the dirt will shine brightly through your decorations. Hahaha. So yea, first wipe down and clean your stairs. Touch up the paint is needed.
Plan out the lighting. Select your color scheme. This year I opted for a more traditional color scheme. It’s green, cream and cranberry red.
Set up the garland first. I am using basic generic inexpensive garland that can be found at Micheal’s or Walmart for about $3 each. wrap lights Wrap the string lighting around the garland before placing on the staircase.
Create a full effect using Christmas picks and swag.
Rise to the occasion… Yep.. I made that very bad pun… Utilize the risers. Dress up the stairs and make a statement….literally. Apply re-positional vinyl decals to your risers. I created my decals using my Cricut Explore. The prices start around $160. I found my Cricut used online. You can find custom decals on Etsy or Amazon.
