Decorating Ideas for your Christmas Stairs!

Today I thought I might share some of my favourite ideas on how to decorate a staircase at Christmas. I have pinned so many staircase pictures because that is the place where I usually hang our stockings since we don't have a fireplace. 

Decorating Ideas for your Christmas Stairs

I really want to make it look much more festive this year and I think I have some great ideas that I might be able to try.

  1. pinning away...we have a large curved staircase that i always swag with garland and lights...and we deck our home in red, red, red every christmas time...thanks for linking up to fridays unfolded!


  2. Love love love all the ideas!! head is swimming! Now if only I had stairs! I'm going to spend the next few minutes to look at the rest of your ideas!

    I'm your newest follower and would love for you to follow me.
    Have a great day!!

  3. Oh these ideas are all just beautiful Natasha! I have a banister I decorate every year, but I really like the idea of the stockings going up the railing! I never thought of that. I may do that this year on my railing! Even the red & white paper bells are so decorative. I also like the cards hanging from the garland. Nice way to display them rather than in a card basket. Thanks for the ideas. Have a great weekend.

  4. Sooooo many wonderful ideas, but I don't have any stairs:(


  5. Beautiful post today Natasha and I have been spending a lot of time on Pinterest as well. I am building my board on Christmas each day. You have given us some really great ideas today.

  6. I don't think I'll ever get tired of Christmas decor. Thanks for sharing. (I'll have to visit you on pinterest.)

  7. How fun, Natasha, I really like the pink vignette.

  11. I'm sad this weekend so I decided to join PS and look at this beautiful Christmas ideas you've shared! Thanks, I loved looking at them. Happy Pink S. FABBY

  12. Hi Natasha,
    Have not been around in blogland for quite a while, too busy with the gardens. It is fun to come back though and read your lovely inspiring blogs.
    A few years ago a shop salled these guirlandes made of acorns. I just loved the naturalness of them and put them up in the room and twisted around the staircase. The nice thing about it is that you can attach just any greenery or Christmassy items. It looks fab!
    Another thing to do is to put little cup candles in glass bowls (or pretty jam jars) on every step of the staircase.
    Thanks for stopping by on my blog!
    Have a happy weekend!

  13. Bad typing mistake there: salled is of course sold!

  14. These ideas for decking out the staircase rail are wonderful. The music was a nice little reminder that Christmas will be here before we know it!

Christmas is forever, not for just one day,
for loving, sharing, giving, are not to put away
like bells and lights and tinsel, in some box upon a shelf.
The good you do for others is good you do yourself...
