Another idea is to hang some garland on the wall above your staircase. This will give you the added feature of making the stairs more festive by painting them a color complements your home decor. For example, if you have a red home, hanging a red garland on the wall will make both your staircases and main house look brighter and more vibrant.

You can also create some mini garlands by cutting cute little strips of floral ribbon or lace from different bright colors (give it a try!). Hang these strands across the tops of each step or at the entrance to each landing. You can also purchase garland in sets such as rose-themed garland for Easter, tulip-themed garland for springtime, or heart-shaped garland for Valentine’s Day. I created this set for my daughter to use for her Valentine’s Day party plans last year, and she loved them!
