Adding a festive touch to every room makes the holidays all the more merry and bright. Whether you like to decorate a little or a lot at Christmastime, there’s one place you may have overlooked for a little holiday embellishment: the chandelier. Read on for some of our favorite ways to deck out your lighting.
1. Boughs of Holly
Since ancient times holly has been used as decoration during wintertime. Its bright red berries and shiny green leaves make for an especially festive look during Christmas. Wrap a boughs of holly around the arms of a chandelier for fresh color.
2. Chandelier Shades
Chandelier shades are a quick, easy way to transform your chandelier into a colorful holiday accent. We chose a cheery red that complements the tabletop decor to pair with our mirrored chandelier. If your setting is more neutral, go for the glamour of our Mercury Glass Chandelier Shades.
3. Au Naturel
We love the understated elegance of a simple sprig of greenery bound by natural burlap ribbon. Attach it to your fixture in the entry for a warm and welcoming focal point.
Are you one of those people who has such a large collection of ornaments that you couldn’t possibly fit them all on one tree? Here’s another beautiful way to display your favorites: stylishly suspend them from the arms of a chandelier using pretty ribbon.
5. Pinecone Garland
Bring a woodsy, rustic look to your home with a homemade pinecone garland wrapped around your chandelier. This is a look you can put up in fall and keep through New Year’s. You can add greenery or berries for more holiday color.
6. Simple Bow
Saving your greenery for your mantel and staircase? Spruce up lighting with the simplicity of a bow made from your favorite ribbon. It adds a delightful touch that guests will notice right away.
