Are you looking for a unique way to decorate your home for the holidays? Look no further than your own chandelier! A chandelier light fixture is naturally festive and can be transformed into an eye-catching holiday decor piece. Decorating a chandelier for Christmas is super simple. I’ll provide you with helpful tips on how you can easily and affordably decorate a chandelier for Christmas using just three items!
Easy Christmas Decor
Don’t you love a good chandelier?! Besides making a room look amazing, I recently found out that they are super fun to decorate! I was inspired by my friend CoCo from The Crowned Goat to try a garland on my dining room light fixture for the Christmas season.
Let me tell you….not only is it SUPER easy but it looks incredibly gorgeous. Join me today for the easiest holiday DIY that you’ve ever seen!
Decorating a Chandelier for Christmas How-To
Let me show you how to add simple holiday flair to any chandelier or light fixture in your home. It’s just two simple steps!
Here is my light fixture before I decorated it with Christmas garland.
Wrap the Garland.
This is the garland that I used on my chandelier.
I simply wrapped the garland twice around the top of my chandelier.
Wrapping it twice around gives the garland itself a fuller look but I also didn’t want to cut it to make it shorter. So, there ya go!
Decorating a chandelier for Christmas is all about ease and functionality, so you do what feels best for you.
I fluffed it, making sure that it was stable enough on it’s own without needing to use floral wire or anything.
My advice would be to use a garland that is fairly light so that it doesn’t fall.
If you are like me, you will probably monkey with the branches for a bit to get them to lay the way you want them to. But, this is a necessary step in the process!
Just turn on some Christmas music and go to town.
Add Faux Berries.
The only other thing I did to my garland was add five faux berry bunches to it.
To do this, I snipped off small branches from large faux berry stems using floral wire cutter.
Then, I simply spaced them evenly around the garland.
I just tucked them into branches that felt sturdy. You could hot glue them in if you wanted to but I didn’t feel that was necessary.
For some added texture, you could place pinecones around your garland, as well.
My garland already had pinecones attached to it but it wouldn’t be hard to hot glue a few here and there.
Other items you could add include:
That’s it, guys! It’s literally the easiest Christmas DIY I’ve ever come up with but it truly adds the most romantic and whimsical holiday touch to my dining space.
I could have added more things to it but I truly love how it looks.
Simple decor goes a long way and, as I’ve learned over the years, less is more 🙂
This is easy Christmas decor at it’s finest!
If you are short on time or the budget feels extra tight this season, let this be your reminder that you don’t need to do anything over-the-top to create a beautiful space for Christmas.
Use what you have or, if you want something completely free, you can find all of these items by foraging in the woods for them!
