Bring joy to your Christmas and add an extra dimension to your Christmas decorating by using hanging decorations in your interior or exterior spaces. Christmas is the perfect season for hanging decorations – but do not think that a Christmas tree is the only place to hang from. There are many wonderful ways you can wow your guests with spectacular hanging décor displays. 

The Perfect Christmas Addition

Santa stockings are typically the first decorations that we hang, and are a popular hanging addition to any Christmas décor.

While the most well-recognised place to hang stockings is over the mantle, there are many other ways that you can hang stockings as part of your Christmas decorating. Find out more about Styling with Stockings.

Any sidetable or shelf, kitchen bench, staircase or even a re-purposed ladder can provide the perfect spot to hang those gorgeous stockings with care. For that added touch, be sure to personalise your stockings.

Hang Decorations from Above

Create a happy holiday-feel this Christmas with garlands and florals up high.

It might be a lush, green, natural looking garland combined beautifully with a light fitting for a sense of natural softness and beauty.

Or garlands draped over the mantle or hutch to create a traditional setting.

Festive and playful garlands bring plenty of colour and fun overhead and can easily brighten up a plain wall.

Bunting is another great way to add colour and dimension to your Christmas decorating. Spread the message of "Merry Christmas" with gorgeous bunting in a range of colours and style to suit your theme.

Deck the Halls

Follow a popular decorating tradition this Christmas by hanging a wreath. Wreaths can be hung on a door (inside or out), on a wall, or even on a cupboard. Adding a wreath brings a sense of welcoming warmth and reminds us all of the closeness of Christmas.

Add a personalised plaque to your wreath for the ultimate hanging decoration combination.

Top your tree – in style!

Ditch the traditional star or angel tree topper  and opt for a hanging Christmas decoration above your tree instead. You could hang Merry Christmas sign, a 3D star or glittery snowflake above your Christmas tree for a unique and luxurious feel.

Decked out with Christmas craft and chandeliers
