If you’re looking to add a bit more of a wow-factor to your interior this year, our DIY ladder is a showstopping display piece for hanging above your Christmas table.
- 2 x Christmas Garlands
- An antique ladder or branch
- Seed Fairy Lights
- Velvet ribbon
- Wire ties
Start by lining up the ladder or branch with your garlands, ensuring that each garland is facing the same way before securing your garland along the side of the ladder with wire ties. Tease the foliage out as you go along for the perfect rustic finish.
Intertwine micro lights along each garland for a festive glow, we recommend one set of our warm white lights for each side as they have a discreet green wire and a super handy time function meaning they will automatically illuminate at the same time each evening. Simply set the battery box to the timer before mounting the hanging centrepiece, so there’s no need to climb onto the table to switch them on each time! You can then secure your battery box by resting it on top of the ladder with wire ties and teasing the garland foliage around it to hide from view.
Finally, fasten each end of the ladder with velvet ribbon and hang from hooks in the ceiling. If you’re renting or don’t want to hang hooks, table hangers or command hooks can work just as well. Before you start, make sure to check the maximum weight it can hold!
Get creative this Christmas and come together with the family for a bit of crafting fun!
