Decorating the banister for the Christmas Holiday!

OK, straight up...Decorating the banister for the  holiday is just not my thang! 
I usually never do it, because I kinda stink at it. 
  I am wanting to join in all the Holiday parties out there, I decided today, last minute, I would come up with something.

Now look how lovely this looks inspiration from bhg of course.
Well I do not have this kind of stair case or I would have tried this one.
I do however, have a pair of old black skates,  some greenery,some gift boxes, and of course some dollar tree junk.

So let's see that I can do here....

Had to have these skates at 11.00 SCORE!

I had one more tin sign to work with as well....

Please ignore the tree, you have not seen it in full yet.

Dollar tree snow flakes..
fresh greenery..

the end result...

Not so priceless...but Not so bad either...

and that is my banister decorating!

So many parties my head is spinning....but in a good way.
Two postings in a day, that is just crazy for me!
Thanks for your sweet visits and I will be catching up soon.

Im with you Debbie, my banister is not where my decorating skills lie. Yours turned out great, and all at the last minute. I have to think mine over for days before deciding. So many linky parties I can hardly keep up.

Looks real good to me. I don't have a banister or a story house and a full wall fireplace. Of course I could have decorated the fireplace but it's just not the same without a mantel..So I get to visit all of you that do! I am impressed with your idea's...

That's the wreath I was going to use for your Christmas copy catting, but it wasn't from a mag. So I was trying to follow the rules. I'm wonderful like that you know! :)

I think your banister turned out great! It coordinates with your fireplace mantel (which I always think they should) so....therefore "high five"! You did a great job. It's very cute and continues your theme with the iceskates and snow. Even your tree behind it fits in well since it appears to be snow flocked. Thanks for sharing!

I love your creativity! Those black skates actually remind me of the ones my dad always wore when we were little. (Haven't always lived in the south...) It all looks wonderful, and I think your tree is beautiful. Yes... I peeked at it. I don't follow directions well.

Your banister is like my mantel is to me...I hate it, it looks good to the naked eye but when I take a picture it is horrible...and that's all I have to say.LOL
Your banister looks great Deb!

It looks pretty cute, Debbie. I can't BELIEVE that you didn't spray paint those skates though. I have a pair of them that I am spraying pink and glittering. Hope MyHero doesn't decide he wants to go skating cuz you know what they will say about HIM! xo Diana

Anonymous Anonymous said... found a way to use the skates! The banner looks fun and whimsical...I like it. I know what you mean about not wanting to miss a party. I will be skipping out on the banister party though, since I live in a one story.

First of all, Debbie, I love your iron spindles. They are gorgeous! Secondly, I love the nostalgic look to your banister decor (especially the ice skates). We do not have banisters to decorate in our house, so I cannot participate (we have pajama stairs only).

Your home is so pretty!!!!!!
