Tie bundles of bare tree and winterberry branches to the spindles in your staircase for an autumnal look. After Thanksgiving, tie pine boughs to the branches with pretty velvet ribbon, and wire Christmas ornaments around the velvet ribbon for extra color.
Use a plain wreath upside down. Bend the branches to attach to the light. Wrap a matching garland around the light making sure to hide the wire backing on the wreath. Needs about 2 sets of garland to look full. Then decorate however you like. Super easy!
