Tape Christmas ornaments such as satin-wrapped spheres or shiny plastic apples on the bottom side of the handrail (one between each spindle if you have spindles).
Tape Christmas cards onto the bottom side of the handrail as they arrive.
Hook candy canes here and there into a holly garland that spirals around the handrail.
Add bows made of red-velvet or metallic-gold ribbon. Here and there attach Christmas ornaments of the same color as the ribbon.
Place tiny wrapped-and-ribboned boxes along the garland.
Add self-adhesive gold or silver stars. A sprinkling in various sizes is especially pretty.
Light the garland with small twinkle lights intertwined with the garland, or place icicle lights so they hang below the handrail.
