Using Decorative Garland For Your Staircase
Garland allows the home decorator to be creative in designing different looks, with a personalized assortment of ornaments to attach to the garland. Hanging the garland in your staircase gives the home a welcoming atmosphere and adds holiday charm. There are several ways to hang a garland in your staircase. Here are some of them. Hang the garland initially by weaving it in and out of the spokes and around the railing of the banister. Do this for the entire length of your banister and continue on any railings that extend along the floor. When the garland is hung, drape the thick ribbon through the garland, wrapping it loosely around the greenery. The ribbon should hang with some slack, so don’t pull it taut. Cut a piece of florist wire long enough to wrap around a pine cone with a bit of extra length. Wrap the wire around the pine cone, hiding it in the grooves of the cone. Attach the pine cone to the garland with the wire. Repeat this until the garland has the desired amount of pine cones.
With the remainder of the wired ribbon, tie three big bows. Attach the bows at each end and in the center of the staircase banister, using floral wire. Thread a piece of wire through the back of the bow, and then twist the wire around the garland to attach the bow. After all, you’ll find a garland at most department stores, drug stores and even grocery stores around the Christmas season.
