Wrapping our stair banisters has become a family tradition every year around Christmas. We would wrap them in shinny Christmas garland, some times we use green and other years red and white to look like candy canes. Then we would wind either multi colored or white Christmas lights on top of them.
This is the our first time wrapping the stairs for fall. I used some of the bright leaf garland you can find at any craft store this time of year, then added the orange Halloween lights on top.
We turn them on each evening and it instantly changes the mood of the whole house. They also provide a warm welcome for friends and family to see as soon as they walk into your home.
We added the same leaf garland around our front door outside along with the orange lights. I love to just stand out side and look at it. If I didn't already live here I would want to be welcomed in. It just makes you feel warm looking at the lights on a cold night.
