Decorating Your Front Door for Christmas

Decorating Your Front Door for ChristmasDecorating your front door for Christmas can be a simple way to impress your guests and neighbours. There are many fantastic Christmas ornaments you can hang on your door or place around it. In this post, we take a look at some common Christmas decorations that you can consider adding to your front door.

Wreaths and Ribbons

The most traditional holiday ornament for a front door is the wreath. You can make a traditional wreath with loose branches from trimming your Christmas tree or use your imagination for a more creative one. It can be a fun DIY project to relax with one afternoon or tackle with your kids. You can also buy ready-made wreaths to save time and get a perfect result.

Ribbons go together perfectly with wreaths, giving them a festive look. You can hang a large wreath on your front door or place several smaller ones in a pattern strung up with ribbon and bows.

Greenery and Garlands

Green branches and garlands are a beautiful way to enhance your entryway this Christmas. Decorate the garlands with pinecones, ribbons, pom-poms, dried flowers or any other ornaments you might have access to.

You can add more greenery to the entrance by placing a mini evergreen next to the door. You can decorate it like a full-size tree or keep it simple by wrapping white holiday lights around it.

Christmas Lights

Lights can also be a great way to decorate an entryway for the holidays. For an eye-catching effect, swirl the lights around the pillars at the entrance. You can also create a frame using string lights and combine them with other Christmas decorations.

Classic or Coloured?

Using white lights can enable you to achieve a more traditional look. Warm white lights are classic and will reflect beautifully in shiny tinsel and Christmas globes. On the other hand, you can go with multi-coloured lights for a modern and fun effect. Purple, blue, and green flickering lights can be great decorations for a fun Christmas party.

Gift Wrapping Your Door

Wrapping your entrance door in gift paper is a fun trend you can try this Christmas. It works best with hinged doors like classic timber doors, but you can also gift wrap aluminium sliding doors as long as you don’t obstruct the tracks.

Wrapping your door creates a holiday look and catches the attention of passers-by. You can create a collage of different colours and patterns or use a single paper type. Don’t forget to add an oversized bow to your “gift”!
