The Banister Gets The Holiday Treatment

Early this morning I asked Isabella if she would like to help me decorate the banister.

"Sure!"

The kids are off from school for the entire week.
I thought I'd take advantage of the available labor.


First we wrapped a couple lengths of garland from Target around the banister.



Then we set out ornaments, ribbon, tape and scissors.
From this point on the only thing I did was show her
PK's tip on how to string three ornaments together.

Afterwards Isabella completed the entire job herself...
I simply watched and took pictures.






Now that is a brilliant way to get some decorating done,
the fun (and easy) way!!

  1. That's right, Janell, put the kids to work! : ) I love the colors you picked and Isabella should be proud of how it turned out! I have to get my stuff out and get a plan together.

  6. One of my blog readers just introduced me to yours, and I love it! Unfortunately for me, my "help" is all under the age of 5 so I'll be doing the decorating myself this year (or at least I'll try). Thanks for sharing :)

  7. Lol, that is awesome! Way to go Team Isabella and Pk!!! The banister looks great, Janell...loving the color combo. My little brother and I used to always do the banister together at home for Christmas when we were little, I miss him helping now that I have my own house:)

  8. What a great way to decorate! I usually hang our Christmas stockings on our banister, so perhaps I'll add some ornaments as well. Thanks for the inspiration!

  18. LOVE THIS! The colors are perfect! I've just finished wrapping my banister in white lights but I'd like to add some tinsel or garland to hide the wires/beef it up a bit.

  19. I love that you just let her have free reign to do this. I think too many of us get all worked up about trying to have the "perfect looking home" & as a result, kids dont get the chance to be creative or at least contribute to our decorating. This was a perfect way to include her and Im sure she loved it:)
