DIY Holiday Staircase Design

by Lynn Lilly, Nov 16 2018

Tis the season to deck the stairs! I normally decorate my staircase with fresh garland and glamorous holiday balls and bows, but this year I decided to go a step farther and create a design on my steps. I have a wide staircase leaving plenty of room to create a beautiful display on the first few steps. You already know I love Krylon®Brand and I am excited to share my favorite products that helped transform boring containers into a beautiful display. 

DIY Holiday Stairs Design

A few things to consider before designing your steps:

  • If you have children, make sure to use non-breakable containers
  • If you have pets and children be conscious of any live plants you decide to display


Krylon Spray Paint


Project Time: 2 Hours (including dry time)


  1. In a well-ventilated space or outdoors cover a flat surface with a drop cloth or tarp. 
  2. Before starting, read and follow safety and application instructions on the spray paint can.
  3. Group the containers and home accents into 4 groups based on the desired finish.                                                            
  4. Spread each item out so it is at least 1 foot away from the other. 
  5. Spray each group of items with the desired finish by holding the can 8-12 inches from the project.          
  6. Let the projects dry for 20 minutes and then spray a second coat. I got my desired look with 2 coats with all 4 finishes. 
  7. Let projects completely dry for 30-45 minutes.

Now it is time to have fun and style your stairs. Start by draping garland on the railings and then place your designed pieces by alternating heights and creating groups of complementing colors. I placed all my containers and accents first and then filled in with greenery, ornaments, and fluff to complete the look!
