Whether you joyfully embrace Christmas and lavish your home inside and out with an abundance of holiday décor or you just want to add a dash of Christmas spirit to a small space, decorated chandeliers are a festive choice.
Christmas chandeliers add holiday pizzazz and sparkle without taking up extra room. Even simple touches like replacing regular white chandelier bulbs with red and/or green ones bathe a room in a holiday glow.
Chandeliers are a great place to give decorating a twist. Wreaths can be hung other places than on the front door and chandeliers make a charming, unanticipated place to find one. Just take greenery and holly (or a red feather boa!), wrap it around the outer edges of the lighting fixture, and tie it together as you go, letting the foliage rest on the arms of your chandelier.
There are numerous ways you can embellish the wreath. Add petite ornaments or tie a red ribbon just above the greenery on the arms of the chandelier. Dress up the wreath with colorful bulbs, golden haired angels or tiny toy soldiers. Adorn it with mistletoe, suspend small family photos in holiday frames, or dangle silver bells from its branches. Whether you like decorating with a theme or prefer a more diverse look, you can make your chandelier blend in or stand out. The ideas are endless.
Don’t want a wreath on your chandelier? There are plenty of other choices, from Santas to stars to snowflakes, from chic to contemporary to country charm. Here are some beautiful examples of Christmas chandeliers that will light up your holidays. Duplicate one of these ideas or come up with one of your own, have fun with it, and remember it’s the little unexpected touches that make holiday decorations truly magical.
