  1. 1

    Clear the piano of all pictures and accessories that might normally sit on it.

  2. 2

    Dust the entire piano using a soft cotton rag and a dusting product. Place a table cloth, one that will either blend in with the dark colour of the piano or one that will complement the Christmas décor, such as a lace doily or long runner. This will help to protect the surface of the piano from the garland as well as any plants that will be placed on top.

  3. 3

    Plug in all Christmas light strings to make sure they work.

  4. 4

    Wrap white Christmas lights around the garland. It will be simple to do this if you place the garland on the floor and then wrap the lights around it. The amount of garland that you will need will depend on the size of your piano. If you are decorating an upright, 3.65 metres (12 feet) will be plenty. If you are decorating a grand piano, measure and then double the amount of garland. This will ensure that you will have enough to cover the entire surface of the piano.

  5. 5

    Carefully place poinsettias on the piano. For smaller pianos, purchase smaller poinsettias and arrange them at both ends of the piano. For large grand pianos buy large poinsettias and arrange them in a way that you like. You may also want to buy some large poinsettias to go at the base of the piano, down by the legs. To protect the piano and floor from excess water that may fall from the plant when watering, place the plant on a clear glass plate.

  6. 6

    Carefully lay the garland and lights onto the top surface of the piano, wrapping them around the poinsettias. Arrange the garland so that all of the area is well covered. Make sure that you place the garland so that the power plug of the lights hangs over the side so that the extension cord can be attached. Position the cord so that it can be hidden from view.

  7. 7

    Place any other Christmas decorations, figurines, pine cones and candles in and around the garland. Tie red or gold velvet bows around the garland to add an additional pop of colour.

  8. 8

    Decorate the rest of the room in a similar way, placing lighted garlands on occasional tables and around banisters and door trim. Place poinsettias around the room and especially the Christmas tree.
