How to decorate shelves for Christmas is very simple. It’s all in the layering of decor. You make a plan, and execute. Start with the big pieces and work your way down.

Once you’ve stood back and decided it looks good, go in with the twinkle lights. I love these ones that come with a remote. Such a help for shelves that are high and then you don’t have part of the cord dangling off the shelf.

After the lights are added, go over them with the snow, weaving back and forth between the houses and trees for a very natural look. You can use any kind of snow here. I went with mini feather boas for a fluffy look and then covered up the lights just enough but let the glow shine through!
