Thread: Decorating the Hallway

  1. #1

    :santa: Decorating the Hallway

    Hello everyone!

    I'm looking for some inspiration this year for ways to decorate my hallway. I live in a little, converted bungalow so the hallway is very, very narrow, with quite a low ceiling. I'd love to brighten it up this Christmas and make it a little more festive-looking but the lack of space makes it quite difficult! I tried stringing up tinsel around the picture rail but it just ended up looking tacky, like a cheap pub!

    Any ideas?

    Could you frame and hang some reproduction Victorian cards? They have some at Victorian Trading Company:

    How do you feel about using lights indoors for places other than the Christmas tree? I think a strand of white lights going around the top of the hall would look nice and give a soft glow at night.

    Decking the Hallway

    I would put up some tiny lights up where the walls meet the ceiling. And then I would display all my fav Christmas cards or Christmas photos.

    I would hang some snowflakes from the ceiling with fishing line.

    If you tack up some of the pine garland around the ceiling/wall edge, fluff it out and then hang some pretty shiny Christmas balls from that at varying lengths. If you also add some white mini lights in the garland it will make the ornaments sparkle. I use a lot of that cheaper $1.99/2.50 9ft garland that you can get almost anywhere, fluff it out pretty and add ornaments, ribbon or pinecones depending on the look I want and it doesn't look so skimpy

    I do this every year on my door that leads outside. I put the cards up in the shape of a Christmas tree. My Grandmother always did this.
