Deck The Halls Christmas Entry

DIY Christmas Stairway Decor ~ combine fresh with faux greenery for a custom and festive look!Christmas has arrived On Sutton Place and believe me, I had my doubts whether or not I could make it happen! For a few days I was smack in the middle of a gigantic mess. Slow and steady was my mantra and room by room, the disarray disappeared. In its place came Christmas. An inexpensive, DIY, use-what-you-already-have kind of Christmas. I’m joining some amazing DIY bloggers for Deck The Halls and the perfect place to start is the entry.

I shared some DIY Christmas Wall Art a few days ago.

I tried fresh garland the first few years we were here and it’s just not worth the mess. I’ve used the same piece of garland for years. Each year I come up with a different way to decorate it. Last year I used giant pine cones and ribbon. This year it’s stars and red balls.

This year they found a home on the stairs.
