How to Design a Room With Christmas Scene Setters


Christmas scene setters are large scale mural posters available in permutations ranging from Nativity scenes to Santa and his reindeer. Other popular depictions include fake roaring fires and Christmas tree forests. Decorate with these scene setters to foster the Christmas spirit in your home, office or classroom.

Step 1

Decide where to place the Christmas scene setters. Because the scene setters are generally very large posters, from 5 to 40 feet long, consider temporarily removing other wall art to make room. Also, if you plan to use the scene setters as a portrait backdrop, leave enough distance around the furniture to take a good photograph.

Step 2

Choose the Christmas scene setters. Consider whether you want to create a trompe l'oeil effect, with fake fireplaces a 7-foot tall Christmas tree, or if the effect should be more like artwork. Dollar stores, big box stores like Wal-Mart, and some drug stores all sell scene setters. Many online retailers also offer them; simply search for Christmas scene setters.

Step 3

Put up the scene setters using double-sided tape, poster glue dots or poster tacks. Choose double-sided tape or poster glue dots that say on the package they will not damage paint surfaces. Only use poster tacks if you don't mind a few small holes in your wall. If your scene setter is more than 5 feet long, enlist the help of another person to help put it up.
