How to Decorate a Chandelier for Christmas
- Gather your supplies:
- A 48 inch bendable dense garland, best if pre-decorated.
- An assortment of bendable long greenry sprigs, about 12″, for volume.
- An assortment of leafy decorative picks, 50 bulbs…10 of each for uniformity…various sizes and shapes, bows, etc.
- For safety, turn off power to chandelier at the fuse box. Also, check mounting screws at ceiling to ensure that chandelier won’t fall during decorating process.
- Encircle the chandelier with the garland, placing it as appropriate for your chandelier, usually within the inside of the arms and globes. Twist the two ends of the garland together so the garland appears to form one individual circle. Fluff individual branches for volume. Want a simple look? You could STOP right now!
- If your chandelier has an upper scrolly portion, use several individual greenery sprigs to weave in and out of scrolls. Use more to place upright, in-between each scroll to add volume.
- Scatter the bulbs, picks, and bows among the greenery as you would when decorating a tree. Remember to gather various sizes, colors, textures, and shapes of ornament to add interest but have enough of the same ornament to create a uniform look. Start with largest ornaments first, gradually adding down to the smallest. Tuck the ornaments into the greenery so you can’t see the hooks or the top of the ornament. You can often get a large box of coordinating ornaments.
- As you can see from the various chandeliers presented here, there are a zillion variations to these directions. Just get started and get creative!
I am going to be trying one of these decorated chandeliers for the first time this Christmas so I will post a picture as to how mine turns out. Wish me luck.
